VISUAL SIGNATURES is a Public Service Announcement (PSA) that highlights a vast cultural array of visual artists who share with viewers their visions of creating art and the rewards of artistic expression.
Former graffiti artist LOUIE GASPARRO delights at creating densely packed abstracts that have an urban twist. He uses an assortment of media -- acrylics, oils, ink, house and spray paint -- to create funky stylized works that are heavily influenced by graffiti art of the 1970s. Gasparro talks candidly about how graffiti discovered him, and his transformation from graffitist to abstract artist.
VISUAL SIGNATURES is produced by the Intercultural Alliance of Artists & Scholars, Inc. (IAAS), a NY-based nonprofit organization that promotes multicultural literature and artistic expression. Seizing the power of television to expand social consciousness, the IAAS fuels the movement for progressive social, cultural and political transformation by exposing the public to perspectives excluded from the corporate-owned media through public access television.
