Moss Graffiti Promotes Sustainability In Urban Spaces [Pics]
Artist Anna Garforth turns eco-friendly materials into elegant typography the doubles as public art.
- 10 april 2012
We love these living walls by artist Anna Garforth; her work is characterized by her continual use of new and varied materials to create typographic work (e.g. food, recycled paper, moss). Each piece should be seen as distinct and carrying its own message and purpose. What seems to tie all of Anna Garforth’s work together is her insistance on interactivity and public engagement. Her pieces are often displayed in community-facing workshops, but she also publishes, exhibits, and maintains a hefty list of clients.
Most importantly, she uses materials that provide a unique tactile experience to the viewer that, especially when coupled with the message itself, reflect the artist’s concerns about the planet and sustainability.
