Meres piece is acrylic and spray paint on a 24 inch by 48 inch canvas.
A prolific graffiti writer, muralist and gate keeper of npw-demolished 5Pointz in Queens, Meres puts his handstyle on display in this piece with an ironic quote about color and shape that is in itself, absent of color. This quote represents how many artists feel themselves, artists who need to create constantly as a way of communication, which feels more natural than speaking or writing.
