Photo Essay: Graffiti and street art

By Eric Watson on February 20, 2013

Today we present a short photo essay on shots of Ottawa graffi by Eric Watson, a local photographer and future blogger  (he is working on site where on photographic theory and the socio/cultural influences behind his photography). According to Eric, in some ways Ottawa is a relatively friendly place for street art.

“These shots are from the House of Paint and the  Slater Street Tech Wall.  I think they give a cool glimpse into the degree in which graffiti is tolerated and to some extent appreciated in Ottawa. Initiatives like this allow for urban artists to harbour their talent and even attract outside talent as is the case with Spanish Artist Dulk who threw a piece up on the Slater St. wall.”

Eric does own printing and framing and will be selling pieces through the site soon. You can see more of his work on his flickr page.
