Moussallem: Capturing urban imperfections

David-changes

Toronto mixed-media artist David Fredrik Moussallem is inspired by vintage signage, graffiti, abandoned scrap yards and erosion in collaged paintings that reflect the imperfect surroundings of urban life. These are found items and acrylic paint on carved wood panel. (Above: Changes, 48 x 42″ / Below: Helvetica, 48 x 48″)
