Reverse Graffiti



If you haven't seen this video before, you owe it to yourself. The idea of using road grime as the canvas and medium is fantastic. Definitely drives home the message.

So how is this relevant to clay? I think all too often clay is about adding decoration. Perhaps this allows us a glimpse over the wall... perhaps seeing that things can be removed to create a form or decoration we couldn't see before.

Hi Alex - loved it - it always amazes me the creativity and thinking outside the box that people have. I find it so hard to do. I presume you saw the video link posted on Clayart recently as well?

Even though they may have been some video trickery involved it is still is an amazingly creative idea.
