There’s a lot of noise in the world as well as in our minds. That’s why we need to give a holler to urban artists for making us stop and shut up for a hot minute. DC Artist Mark Jenkins does a pretty good job at it. Known for using packaging tape to create human sculptures, all of his pieces arouse some sort of warm perplexity that frees your mind and makes it smile. Is her head really detached from her body so she can watch Dr. Phil? Isn’t that lady worried her hair is going to get tangled in the bicycle spokes? Is Splinter from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles emerging to give autographs? These are some of the questions you might ask. And that’s okay. It’s good for the soul.
