The Melange Garden, 2016

Watching the poster guy paste posters motivated me weeks later transferring the technique onto canvas by ripping the posters and applying, overlapping with an all-purpose glue purchased from Opus Art Store. Other artists such as Picasso and Jacques Villegle inspired me with their techniques and styles of mixed media, collaging, de-collaging papers and using found objects.

It is up to an officer's discretion whether to fine or not, and some people have been issued fines up to $4500.00. Fines are $250.00 a poster and caught on the spot $478.00, in Canada. The day I removed posters a man questioned me, "Is that your job?" I responded with a freedom of expression smile, "It is now." A pole once blanketed with posters mirrored reflections of graffiti, street, canvas art to me and best removed.

Presently, any TIEABOW paintings may only be SOLD in Canada due to trademark law restrictions.
