Brooklyn based artist Kevin Cyr has created a new series of artwork based on things we see everyday, graffiti. Cyr’s new series brings out the beauty in what he likes to call ‘derelict cars and unkempt landscapes.’

The 20 paintings are on Vandura, Chevy, and Econoline Chateau vans documented in Brooklyn, New York. Each of the 20 profile images below are created with oils and silkscreen on panels, with a suprisingly life-like and realisitic feel, saying ‘I commemorate commercial vehicles inundated with graffiti and rust, working vehicles, and well-traveled recreational vehicles.

What was Kevin Cyr insperation for creating this series? ‘I find that there is so much character in old delivery trucks and vans — especially when covered with graffiti — and in the old RVs parked off a main road. Removing them from their everyday context gives them portrait-like importance.’ Job well done.
