For people who want their romance served straight-up.
It's not often that you stop dead in your tracks while walking down a city street and find yourself unable to move, staring at a piece of art plastered to the side of a building or a bus bench.
It happens when the art is by Morley, an LA-based artist who wheat pastes simple, but shockingly profound, little phrases all around town. These are quotes about love that sound like the exact way you feel. Morley explained how that was sort of the point.
"I think that one of the best feelings in the world is the sense of relief you can have in knowing that you’re not alone in how you feel. Whether that feeling is one of soaring joy or crushing heartbreak- knowing that someone else has felt what you felt and been able to put it into words, or a melody, or an image- or any other method of expression- it’s like speaking a foreign language and finally finding the perfect translator."
This is art for people who want their romance served straight-up.
Morley's work isn't designed to push buttons or go viral, though. "When I started doing what I do," he told me, "one of the biggest selling points to me was that I wasn’t asking for a reaction. I could put up a piece and just assume the best. Putting up art without permission meant not having to face the rejection that any artist looking for an audience has to experience on a daily basis."
