Opal Petty


Collage, spray paint


This graffiti art-inspired collage repurposes a vintage page of wanted women who have committed petty crimes, and juxtaposes it with a graffitied mythical creature of North American folklore.  Perhaps a double entendre of the artist’s name, or perhaps a commentary on myth, politics, and perception, the resulting image creates a dynamic conversation between the artist and the viewer.
