BARE Texture in public

TOSS YOUR CANVAS AND PAPER ASIDE. THIS COLLECTION DELVES INTO THE CHARACTER OF SURFACES OF ALL TYPES. FROM RUSTED METAL WITH SUN BLISTERED PAINT AS A BASE FOR SKIN, TO PEELING PLASTER AND BROKEN CONCRETE TO ADD TO ONES COMPOSITION, STREET ARTISTS ARE LEADING THE PACK UNITING TEXTURE (SURFACE) WITH THE ACTUAL WORK OF ART. THE TWO BEING EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT.

Escif carefully chooses his location here, as he always does, using the clean blankness of this wall to convey something graphic. At the same time it tricks your mind to questioning its reality.
Here Escif uses the existing textures on the wall to convey the transparency of the jars.
Roa's creatures travel the world, and it would seem he is inspired by the different locations in which he practices his craft. This scorpion is set perfectly on a desert-like wall, creeping above the vines.
Again Roa masters the territory by using it to his advantage. This chameleon belongs here, the cracking earth colored brick and concrete walls half destruct.
The wall here has an eroded and aged texture, adding to the mythological nature of this pegasus winged horse unicorn. The patched over concrete in contrast with the smoother older parts add's to the dramatic sense of movement.
Here we see the first use of light as texture. Swoon masters her placement of these young girls; the adobe building giving off a central american feeling, along with the complimentary shadows of overhanging nature.
The use of texture here is astounding. Baglione escaped the barriers and jumps standing wall to crumbling rock. This texture brings movement and perspective to a simple graphic piece.
The texture here is captivating: metal rusting, powder blue flaking, framed in by eroding rocky wall. The placement and use of texture helps Stew convey the feeling of an underground society symbol.
Coming off with a Keith Haring vibe, artist Jace uses this Middle Eastern feeling wall as a platform for his cartoony snake. He uses both the text of the wall, and the textures playing off the ground to complete his setting.
Artist Inman uses the texture of this blank canvas while also creating one of his own. He uses his typographical/stylistic approach to design this textured cast shadow of a tree growing up the wall.
Without this wall, this dragonfly would be floating in space. It is the cracking bottom, and the dry vegetation atop, which join this image with its surface. His vivid use of weaving and wrapping are complimented by the eroded nature of this wall.
This simple piece uses a doorway now closed by concrete. The contrast of old and new created a texture platform in which the clouds exist exquisitely.
This wall serves as the perfect serving dish for Charles Bukowski's head. Orticanoodles uses this texture to provide a patchy/aged feeling to his face and hair.
This mailbox of sorts adds to the feeling of age for this piece done by C215. The yellowing/eroding texture gives the feeling of wisdom and time.
