Paintings by Brooklyn-based artist Jonathan Chapline. More below.
What you’re looking at is not a discarded cigarette package, it’s a detailed painting by artist Tom Pfannerstill on a carved piece of basswood. His artworks are made based on objects he finds in the street, which he carefully catalogs, noting the time and place of each. These re-created artifacts act as a very personal record of his movements through time and space. For him, creating these 3D memories is “strangely comforting in a world that is increasingly electronic and virtual”.

I was walking down West 4th last week and ran into my bud Luke Ramsey, painting a little mural out front of what will soon be the Patagonia Vancouver shop. I love everything he makes! This one was inspired by the movement of a circulatory system, and if you’re in Vanvouver it’s at 4th and Maple. More images below.
