Mark Jenkins makes art where he wants to.
Mark Jenkins makes art where he wants to. If only we were all so bold with our creations, the world would likely be a more chaotic, and more beautiful, place. I’ve seen some work in RVA that mirrors his, slightly, at least in it’s intent- additions to street signs and the such. I have never seen work as significant as his, however, offered freely and without regard to galleries, approved spaces, or, indeed, any sort of approval at all, anywhere in Richmond, unless we count the innumerable scribblings and paintings on walls, trash cans, alleys and structures. This the intent of graffiti without the spray can. It’s Banksy, but sculpture.
