About the Art:

This unique print captures a captivating moment in the artist’s journey. The original photograph was taken by the artist in NYC and then expertly “polypasted” onto a brick wall in Baltimore’s Graffiti Alley using the artist’s innovative technique called “polypasting.” Each print is a one-of-a-kind piece of art, meticulously screen printed by hand. It is individually numbered and signed by the artist. The photo features a woman from the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island, New York, taken in 2016. The artist collaborated with graffiti artists and taggers to create this vibrant piece, which became part of the original wall’s rich history. Through the artist’s careful techniques, the white areas of the photograph become translucent, adding to its visual appeal.

The print was created using the silkscreen printing process to retain the vivid and pure colors. This manual process ensures that no two prints are identical. Four different screens were used, each representing a different color. The print is made on high-quality archival cotton French paper from Niles, Michigan, known for its durability and sophistication. The printing took place at a community-based screen printing shop in Detroit, Michigan.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of this print will support the Rosenfeld Org, a non-profit experimental art organization dedicated to preserving and protecting Graffiti Alley, Graffiti Warehouse, and Temple of Oz, as well as supporting street artists.

About the Artist:

Luis Rosenfeld is a visionary artist known for his unique blend of photography, street art, and unintended collaborations. Based in Baltimore and Detroit, he is the founder of Graffiti Warehouse in Baltimore and Temple of Oz in Detroit. Rosenfeld’s art seeks to raise awareness for birth control through creative expression. He also spends significant time in Miami Beach, where he attends “Art Basel,” one of the most important art shows in the world, keeping him abreast of the latest art trends..

Known for his “shock and awe” approach, Rosenfeld follows his intuition when capturing subjects in his photographs. He celebrates individuals who embrace their originality and defy societal expectations.

As a recognized street artist in Bushwick, NYC from 2012 to 2017, Rosenfeld has left his mark on the walls of this vibrant Brooklyn neighborhood, employing his innovative technique known as “polypasting.” This involves using polyurethane to attach his prints to various surfaces, such as brick, concrete, wood, and canvas. The prints are then coated with polyurethane for protection and a glossy, semi-transparent finish. He ceased his street art activities in Brooklyn after being arrested and spending a couple of nights in jail.

Throughout the lifespan of his pieces, other artists paint over them, prompting Rosenfeld to remove and redefine key elements of the photo. This dynamic process results in a vibrant composition where the original energy and soul remain intact.
