About the work:

Flaneur is a drawing adapted from a larger body of work called Significant Culture, a large scale fresco composed of drawings printed onto PVC mesh. The work mimics a style of mosaic making known as Graffito, in which tiny holes and lines are cut into marble and filled with stucco.
