Mark Jenkins - Purple Splendor - Vienna

Mark Jenkins??? work is one of the best examples of art in the streets that goes beyond the flat surface of a wall, but his installations accomplish much more than that. What they are is truly a fine example of how art out there should make people react somehow to what they see and not just entertain a few colleagues in the internet or amuse another ???street artists??? or Street art fans.

Jenkins sees public space as a battleground on which advertisers and artists are all competing for visual space. His illegal street art installations, human casts made from packing tape placed in public spaces around Washington, are designed to awaken passers-by from the comfort of their daily activities.
