Adhesive Expressionism

Mike Walton

Adhesive Expressionism is a temporary ad-hoc form of personalization, advertising, claiming territory, and expressing personalities. Stickers tend to proliferate in areas that are highly pedestrian oriented, such as the Ave. in the University District of Seattle, where these photos were taken. Some are simple tags drawn on free labels, such as address labels from the Post Office, while others are printed on home computers to adhesive paper or even printed professionally on plastic papers by print shops. Ranging from simple line drawings to miniature works of art, this subtle medium adds up to create a wonderfully rich texture to the social fabric of our urban environment.
