Graphite design on matchbooks

There is street art, that you either like or hate but there is also graphite design, which is a detailed/accurate illustration.

Krista Charles is a talented and certainly patient artist.

The procedure is in fact straight forward but can be time consuming. Here is how it works.

Krista takes a matchbook with an address on it – usually a promotional product from a random business.

The second stage is to browse the internet in order to find on Google Maps and more precisely Street View the company concerned.

From there on, Krista will draw ON the matchbook inside cover, the actual image published by Google of that actual firm, retailer, trader, restaurant…etc

Each work is unique, in other words a limited edition.
