wall cuts

Wall cuts are panels in the New York City subway system where print advertising is displayed. The tearing of paper by "subway artists" to create collage-like effects, the passage of time and organic processes of decay all contribute to create arresting images with bold and striking gestures, delicate, layered effects and a wide range of colors, textures and patterns.

Panels are grouped onto 3 different pages according to format: Landscape (60" x 48"); Portrait (24" x 48") and Oversize (anywhere from 7 - 14 1/2 ft. x 48").
