Urban Geode Street Art

The past year I have been creating street art in my local Los Angeles area, greater California, and internationally. Rather than using traditional paint or wheat paste methods in a 2D platform, I’ve been using paper and resin in 3D. These sculptures come in all sizes and fit in the holes of buildings and pipes found while walking around. The finished shapes represent geodes, crystal, quartz, or any mineral formation that you would normally find in nature, now in our planned out cities.

“Geodes” in the city and the ones you find in nature have a parallel aspect—they are unexpected treasures. You might go hunting for treasures but you generally happen upon them during your adventures or casual interaction with the environment. I enjoy the fact that many people will not notice these, but some astute people will; that these will not last forever and the elements will affect them as naturally as it might in nature.

So far I’ve traveled to Madrid, Bali, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. Enjoy the images and feel free to hunt for the existing ones using this map of current locations.

I have also started participatory art with the geodes in which you can install them in your own cities. There are successful installations in Jordan, Turkey, Australia, S. Africa, Korea, and France. Please email streetart@acommonname.com for more information.

To keep this project going, please consider donating via PayPal by clicking on the button below. I finance this project myself and would appreciate any help towards growing the participatory art project.
