New Wheat-Pasted Letter Forms from El Sol 25

Posted on February 19, 2013

New text based stuff has been popping up that may remind you of ransom letters or a D*Face logo but it actually turns out to be Street Artist and former graff writer El Sol 25, who we are accustomed to seeing figurative painting mashups from. If you apply the same technique he favors of recombining heads, torsos, and limbs from various sources to create a new franken-form, it makes sense that this is how text would come out too. As with the other work, this appears to be entirely hand painted also. So, to review, these are hand-painted letter forms that are then wheat-pasted – is it a new category? Not exactly a piece is it? – and definitely not a tag.
