I love his work! At a distance they look like abstracts, up close they are a cut-outs of humans just simply being humans. They become extraordinary when taken out of context like this.

Here’s what he has to say: “Up close, the unique personality of an individual can be detected. Upon retreating to observe a large group of people from a distance, individual sentiment will dissolve into the abstract patterns of a crowd. Whether these patterns suggest a street fair, a protest, or a tragic disaster, the negative space surrrounding the event offers an absence of context, isolating the brush strokes in a sea of neutral color as if they were a school of fish. “
