toronto-based street artist fauxeel has just released images of his latest series of works from the series
‘face of the city’. the new collection of works feature fauxreel’s signature pasted paper applied in a new
way. each site-specific piece ‘combines the abrasive charm found in the distressed surfaces of modern
cities with the intimate familiarity of the prominent features of the human face’. the works use printed
facial features applied on distressed surfaces to create an unusual combination of urban environment
and printed imagery. the artist explains, ‘the fusion of these two entities will simultaneously expose the
frailty of urban architecture and to a certain extent human existence, while conversely exploring the
idea that beauty truly lies in the scars, wrinkles and blemishes of places we live and people we meet.
