Inspiration for Grand Rapids
My inspiration for this piece came from my painting background with my new interest in photography. I figured that combining these two elements together to create a mixed media piece would be intriguing. After the idea of this combination I went to Grand Rapids to do a photo shoot, but not from the recognizable areas of the city; the parts that get overlooked by tourist and residents of the city. Then the came the part of combining the photos with my painting style and I wanted the piece to show a feel of graffiti
