"I WAS HERE" – This is my entry for Art Prize 2011. It is a sticker collage covering 40 years, 1970's through 2011, there are 4 panels, each panel covers a decade. I have included everything from popular music, movies, TV, trends, festivals, events, technologies and anything else that can describe that decade. I have 1 newspaper cover on each panels decade of importance, 70s -Moon Landing, 80s -Reagan Wins Election, 90s -Rock n Rock Hall of Fame,2000's New Millennium. This is the digital version of this piece, It's too big to photograph really well.
The size is 8 ft wide X 6.5 ft tall, 2011 Art Prize entry. This is a newer unexplored medium. Sticker art has been done before, but I don't believe to this extent, telling a story to a timeline. It was a lot of fun to remember these times and create this through month's of planning and designing. Almost all the stickers are the original promotional items from their respected decades, only a few reproductions. The motivation for this artwork was to mark my timeline and show the things in life I have been here to witness, and in doing it this way, everyone can also related to their timeline older or younger.
