Where others see only lines of tar made by road way repair, or yellow street lines or numbers scrawled on the pavement to mark some sewer line and their eyes slide past them, forgotten, Will Bushell sees them with an artist’s eye. This book is his vision, framing the art found on streets and parking lots. Tar lines become gestures, yellow lines and sewer covers part of the composition. Even the grain of the pavement becomes a textural component of the art he finds there. Dodging oncoming traffic and often having to wait for the moment when traffic allows, he captures his shots and shares them in this book.
William Bushell was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and received his art education at the Alberta College of Art in Calgary and the University of Alberta In Edmonton. Primarily a painter, Will has since exhibited his work in Calgary and Victoria, BC, where he currently resides with his wife Helen, also an artist.
