Fading Art


I have always been fascinated by the fading vestiges of the painted billboards. There are a few, here in Ottawa, which I have been meaning to capture before they disappear completely… Maybe this summer? Every so often I come across this site and love poring through the new additions.

It is run by Frank Jump. Most of his are in the New York City environs but he also has links to other sites and collections, including his Fading Art blog.

Sadly, more disappear every year, either painted over; the buildings supporting them knocked down, or, in some cases accidentally falling down; or simply fading into oblivion.
