West exterior (alley) wall of Trolley Building (524 S. Tejon St.), Colorado Springs, CO, 80903

Artist: Foster Romano of Colorado Springs, CO

Artist statement: SOL is the companion piece to LOONA (see below).  I am inspired by the graffiti work I have seen in different cities. I created my own calligraphy alphabet as a reflection of how my neurodiversity impacts the way I see written language differently than a neurotypical brain. SOL/LOONA explores this complex issue by giving the viewer a taste of my experience: they will recognize these murals have a message, but they will not be able to decipher what they say.

Medium type: Paint (acrylic, oil, etc.)
