DESCRIPTION

Dead End is a monumental wall painting created by means of a modular stencil painting system. The stencils were generated from hundreds of photographs the artist has taken of crudely rendered faces found on graffitied surfaces in locations across Canada and the United States. Dudiak’s painting explores individuality and dissent in a modern urbanized milieu by contrasting the transgressive public declarations of graffiti with a sequential and arbitrary production system evocative of the serial wall paintings of Daniel Buren and Sol Lewitt.

Mark Dudiak is a Toronto based artist who received a BFA from the Emily Carr University, Vancouver and has exhibited extensively across Canada. Recent exhibitions include Scotia Bank Nuit Blanche, Trinity Square Video’s Right, and A Beautiful Place For A Murder, BOHART Projects, Vancouver. His work will be included in the upcoming exhibition 6 Days No Contact at Narwhal Contemporary Art, Toronto.
