Urban Housing, 2015

Linocut

This print depicts the current state of housing in urban areas. The buildings in this picture appear slanted and deformed and this speaks to how urban housing is neglected. The buildings also look very unstable which is also another complication with urban housing. Urban housing areas are known for being associated with crime, poverty, and improper living conditions. Housing in urban areas is in need of dramatic reform.
