Artist Scatters Small Wood Cutouts in Public Spaces for Strangers to Find and Keep

Using layers of hand-cut paper and spray paint to create texture and form, New-jersey based artist Joe Lurato places small wood cutout figures in public spaces, documenting his personal life experiences. The works are often left to interact with the environment and community. In a recent interview with Brooklyn Street Art, Lurato explaines, "I try to see the possibilities for a larger picture within a smaller space: a puddle can become a lake, a small crack in a cement wall can become a magnificent climb, a curb or window ledge can fall away into a desperate void, a planter box can become a place for a child to play, and a shadow might be a tangible space for a few seconds a day."
