Artist Leaves Tiny Wooden Figures Around The City For People To Find
If you're walking around New Jersey, make sure to pay attention to your surroundings, because you just might find tiny wooden people hanging around, created by a Street Artist Joe Iurato.
“One of the elements that I love about doing these smaller wood art pieces is the surprise factor. You might see it. You might not." the artist said in an interview with Brooklyn Street Art. "If you do, though, it's not something that grabbed you from across the street as a massive 40' mural would. Chances are you caught it from the corner of your eye just a few feet away, and the connection made with the work of art is intimate.”
Each of the wood sculptures is a unique short story, often based on the artist's real-life experiences. The wood carving is often placed in a way to look as if it's interacting with the surroundings and before leaving the art installation behind Joe Iurato photographs the scene.
