Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?

By far one of our favorite artists over here at the Leased Ferrari camp is ELBOWTOE. In the artist's own words this new piece titled "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" "is an allegory about memory's power to hold us back or move us forward. The central character in this parable is a 6 x 10 foot linocut...

...of an Everyman, who has lost it all and wanders the plains with all his belongings strapped to his back. He navigates a world in crisis by learning from his past. The remainder of the characters that he encounters are individuals lost in regret... Every character that the Everyman sees is gripped by this need to escape their present circumstances. They are people lost in a memory at the very point when they should be paying attention to what lies ahead." This is one of the most thought provoking and meaningful pieces of street art we have run into, big ups to ELBOWTOE.
