Urban Street Art: Ivy Hair (2 pics)

Here's a lovely site-specific piece titled “Tara” by Toronto-based street artist Dan Bergeron aka Fauxreel. It's the latest addition to his “Face of the City” series, which features “portrait-based works that combines the abrasive charm of the distressed surfaces of modern cities with the intimate familiarity of the human face.”

“As the walls and surfaces of the city define its physical character and spatial identity, the faces of its inhabitants provide the city with its personality, disposition and magnetism,” says Fauxreel. “The fusion of the two explores the idea that beauty truly lies in the scars, wrinkles and blemishes of places we live and people we meet.”
