Daniel Ginns and The Rothko Walls Project

Daniel Ginns and The Rothko Walls Project

Portsmouth ex-pat and Strong Island friend Daniel Ginns has been photographing graffiti paint-overs for a while, in a collection that turns these ignored urban walls in to randomly formed, geometric forms:

“That results in free floating geometric shapes habitually only a slightly different shade of colour from that of the original wall, layered on top of each other creating imagery that could be considered reminiscent of the abstract expressionist painter Mark Rothko.”

The project is in keeping with his current illustrative projects (we featured Daniel’s Durational Line Drawing project recetly, read HERE) in many ways and shows an artist diversifying by taking concurrent themes and applying them to the visual form most appropriate to express them.

This project has really picked up a lot of international press recently with the project featured on It’s Nice That and Huffington Post.
