Food for thought: Homeless Street Art by Michael Aaron Williams
The street art from Michael Aaron Williams is something totally different from what I saw before. Michael Aaron Williams purposely puts up his homeless street people in places where others will find them. He doesn’t glue them up, rather, he simply tapes them to the walls so that anyone who passes by might want to stop, take them off the wall, and bring them home. So when the pictures are left up and if no one takes them they will cease to exist. They will be destroyed and blown away in the wind or other forces that will rip them down and throw them away.
Ultimately, it’s up to the viewer to decide on the fate of these characters; whether they’ll end up discarded, trampled on, and thrown away or lovingly taken home.
