ABOUT THE ART
Based on his original painting Blank Canvas #115 - TPIX, from his prolific and ever-expanding Blank Canvas series. Combining spray paint, typography, painterly abstraction, and tromp l'oeil to create these large-scale, close-up paintings, Conlon presents a literal "peek" into freight train painting art and culture.
