Street art with a decaying twist: photos by Charlene Weisler

Charlene Weisler’s urban photography is inspired by the transience and impermanence of street art. Concentrating on the evolving nature of layered, decaying graffiti, Weisler’s art captures a timeline of competing efforts and messages eroded by weather and time.

Notably, the photographs are “as-is” – as she finds them on the streets – and are not edited or changed in any way. And yet, her haunting photographs create a totally new and self-contained art image, mysteriously missed by the passerby on the street. The result is a rich mixture of texture, color and form that celebrates urban decay.
