Text-Based Murals by Phil Hansen

Artist Phil Hansen create large-scale murals made entirely out of handwritten text from stories of challenges and struggles to words of encouragement and hope.

"My present approach evolved out of what seemed at the time to be an artistic cul-de-sac: damage to the nerves in my forearm from the single-minded pursuit of pointillism. Driven to think of other ways to create art, I began pushing myself to experiment with new media: my torso, a tricycle, X-rays, dandelions, the Bible, viewers’ experiences, and so on. The selection of the medium became integral to the art, as much a part of the story and the holistic experience as the selected fragments themselves."
