About Urban Abstracts:
Urban Abstracts is a series of digital artworks by Lawrence Hultberg produced from his original photography. Patterns, textures and geometric shapes are found everywhere, especially within an urban environment. With his Urban Abstracts, the artist captures the details and abstract geometries of otherwise mundane urban artifacts and treats them as if they were fine art compositions. The rust of an automobile, the patterns found on a manhole cover, the peeling paint of a weathered wall or the ubiquitous street lines painted onto asphalt are graphically transformed when taken out of context and composed the way the artist has. These images take on new dimensions reminiscent of modern art from the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s; including abstract expressionism, constructivism and op art.
