"Outside Looking In" by Crash

Crash is a Graffiti artist best known for his three-dimensional representation of lettering. Born in the Bronx, NY, he began spray painting on subway trains in his early teens, working alongside other pioneering American Graffiti artists. Although Crash's early work was lost when the MTA removed all Graffiti Art from the subway trains, he transitioned into working on canvas in 1978. CRASH established his place in the New York gallery scene in the early 1980s. He has also completed several public commissions, including the design of the Spectacolor Billboard in Times Square in 1981. I specifically like this painting because I think the title "Outside Looking In" is a great name for the painting. It kind of gives the idea that there is so much going on in life that sometimes we only see what we may want to see.
