Kevin Cyr’s City Character Art

March 29, 2010 at 17:53 Leave a comment

“In a culture in which people are easily lured by the appeal of status-enhancing symbols, I find beauty in derelict cars and unkempt landscapes. I commemorate commercial vehicles inundated with graffiti and rust, working vehicles, and well-traveled recreational vehicles. I find that there is so much character in old delivery trucks and vans — especially when covered with graffiti. Removing them from their everyday context gives them portrait-like importance. I paint with devoted attention to every imperfection and sign of age.” Kevin Cyr
