The Former Writer, Part 1: Colour on Surface series revolves around random objects that have only one obvious thing in common: They have all been spray-painted. These mundane items, which range from chairs and tires to bricks and wood, have been made into vibrant sculptures. They have even been artistically arranged to show just how removed they are from their previous existence.

Created by Thomas Albdorf, the Former Writer, Part 1: Colour on Surface series "explores his teenage habit of graffitiing anything that stayed still long enough to be spray-painted," a written on It's Nice That. Simple yet thought-provoking, he explains that his latest crop of work delves into "the relationship between pre-photographic painterly and sculptural interventions and their post-photographic digital equivalents."
