המשך ללכת איש קטן (Keep Walking Little Man)

Jerusalem
Summer 2012

1000 small paintings in public spaces. The piece is being made live, mostly during the day, throughout Jerusalem. It is part of my on-going efforts to make work daily, enjoyable, portable. I am wandering through the city looking for suitable locations.

The paintings are on steel Bezeq access panels on the sidewalk. The paintings will bring attention to the figure in each panel. The blue square functions as my signature on each piece.

When I find one, I randomly select to do 1, 2, or 3 paintings in one space.  Each painting has two layers of white acrylic house paint as undercoating and one coat of acrylic color. The colors are selected randomly from a set of 12 colors.

I am working mostly during the day to allow viewers a different sense of art making. By being public, during daylight hours, the process of art making becomes visible. The process is not dark, mysterious, or wild and chaotic. With the process visible, people can begin to develop a better relationship to art, artists, and the public spaces around them.

I have met some nice people while working and gotten very positive feedback.

I will document a little, but the hope is to just let the work have a life in public, without much record keeping on my part.

Keep Walking Little Man.
