The Public Space Inspires My Creativity


It is noticeable the fine art influence in Specter‘s street art.

Notes from the artist’s statement:

Since 1995 I have used the urban situation as a primary destination for my creative concepts through installations that merge with abandoned buildings and forgotten environments. This obsession with art in public spaces is a result of being introduced to the fine arts through graffiti, viewing all public space as potential inspiration and location for my creativity. Often the subject matter in my work evolves in order to reflect the chosen location. The characteristics of certain neighborhoods such as the architecture, signage, local businesses, and socio-economic classes are all factors in that influence.
