"The Commuters" Artist Statement
“There once was this town where the people held their homes inside of them as they traveled around the world and back.”
This mural is to illustrate a busy commuting scene along all 3 walls. Through visual clues, my purpose is to get the viewer to engage in a curious act of “People Watching”. In this illustration, each subject’s face is strategically hidden so that the viewer is only left with visual clues. These clues give a glimpse into what that person may be up to, their cultural experiences, but most important resonate as familiar scenes for the viewer.
