Graffiti Sticker Wall Mural

The graffiti sticker wall mural installed in the lobby of Ace Hotel New York and is made by Michael Anderson. The sticker wall is composed of international street posters. These fragments of thousands of posters are re-arranged in a painterly fashion to create the composition and imagery of an individual piece. Michael takes pride in making art about the world we live in, a document to show what it’s like to be alive today.

Meet the Creator

"Advertising provides the material, appropriation is the mode of operation, and collage is the medium of my artistic creation/recycling. To create my collages, I use international street posters, taken from the streets of such far-flung places as Mexico City, Berlin, Amsterdam, London, Paris, Rome and, of course my hometown favorite, NYC. The fragments of thousands of posters are re-arranged in a painterly fashion to create the composition and imagery of an individual piece.

I attempt to balance abstraction and representation in composition to create a static/non-static effect in the over-all experience of the work. These collages develop non-linear narratives that capture the experience of contemporary life with dark humor. In taking posters from the street, which are super-saturated and obvious, I focus ideas together to create a collision of energy that allows for tremendous juxtaposition. When people see my work there is a pinprick of recognition, an unexplainable familiarity, that they’ve seen parts before, but never in that way. As a sort of puzzle map of the collective unconscious, I make art about the world we live in, a document to show what it’s like to be alive today.«"
