“The Crowd” is a collaborative piece between painter Gord Bond (Canada) and interdisciplinary artist Isabella Chydenius (Finland), currently in residence at ESXLA. The piece is a series of drawings on the removed pages of a recycled art book. The drawings by each artist are reactions to each other’s work in the style the old surrealist drawing practice exquisite corpse. The piece captures both real and imagined characters as observed in the Lincoln Heights community. Our aim is to place these characters back into the streets of this community and creating an exterior gallery, by means of wheat pasting the images.
