Elbow Toe — worx

Under the name Elbow Toe, Brooklyn based artist
Brian Adam Douglas has been pasting his distinctive
woodcuts, stencil work, large-scale charcoal drawings
and collages onto the walls of cities all around the
world throughout the past decade. His diverse practice
is anchored by an interest in the human gesture as a
powerful form of communication, one charged with unspoken
narratives and he continually transforms public space
into a stage for these private moments.


Douglas’ work has always drawn from myth, symbolism and
poetry, something that has become particularly important
in his most recent body of collage work. Just as he builds
a finished image through the meticulous layering of tiny
individual bits of coloured paper, so the meaning of the
image is woven through layers of references to historically
and culturally established narratives.
