Hello? allo allo! I wrote about Canadian painter Randy Hryhorczuk just over 7 years ago… 7 years! Well, I loved his billboards then, and I love them now! His portfolio is full of phone booths, abstracts, and airplanes but my heart will always belong to his ice cream colored, clever, beautifully painted billboards. Happy Friday.

I wish I could paint the sky like this. Toronto based artist Randy Hryhorczuk certainly can. I saw these at the Toronto Outdoor Art Show, and you couldn’t miss them – they totally stood out. Hm. Kind of the whole point of an actual billboard.

There are beautiful things that we experience everyday, but don’t really see. Buildings you pass while rushing to work, an old coffee mug on your desk, the cozy chair that you flop into when you get home from a busy day. Most people would never consider these things special enough to be artistic subject matter. This collection of work is just that. Everyday things that your eye most likely skips right over. But when you take the time to stop and study them, like these seven artists have, you realize that each one has a story to tell, and that ‘boring’ really can be beautiful.

[*February 2013: A smaller version of this show is actually being hung {not pretend, like the “show” below!} at the Tanner Hill Gallery in Chattanooga TN from Feb 8th – March 29th, 2013!]
