Dr. Karayom's Negative Graffiti

Dr. Karayom claims himself as the modern caveman. And it seems so that he is. His fresh clean up of portions of a road wall in Lerma St. Sampaloc, Manila, Philippines reveals figurative urban anecdotes, which recalls the pre-historic cave paintings. But Dr. Karayom has used a reverse process of painting that is fitting to an urban area riddled with dirt and dust. When the pre-historic humans blew or brushed the pigments on the wall, or engraved images, Dr. Karayom wiped off parts of the dusty wall to create images. More photos here.
