Brooklyn Street Art Interviews Fauxreel - More Wheatpaste Art about the Homeless
Brooklyn Street Art recently interviewed paste artist Fauxreel about his project "The Unaddressed," which focused on finding a way for the homeless community in Toronto to have a voice. For this project, he interviewed members of the homeless community, and created images of them holding signs that depict, "...messages that were counter to what is usually seen on panhandling signage today."
Fauxreel goes on to discuss the environment of the street, and how it naturally is a community space, and how street art affects the audience of the pedestrian. To read the interview and see more images by Fauxreel, visit here.
