Any urban space can deliver a compelling story through the use of graphics—even something as common as a bus kiosk. The Seattle Office of Arts & Culture and the Seattle Department of Transportation partnered to produce art installations that wrap bus kiosks in Seattle, Washington. Three alums from Seattle’s Public Art Bootcamp were commissioned to create artwork for the kiosks, featuring stories and messages from their unique perspectives. SuperGraphics printed and installed the kiosk wraps at nine locations along the 3rd Ave. corridor.
Angie Hinojos created “The Five Creations” for her kiosk wrap. This piece showcases the story of five creations directly from her Aztec heritage. Hinojos explains in her artist statement that her piece “is a story of birth, destruction, hope, and the passage of time which illuminates our past and orients us toward the future.”
Baso Fibonacci created “Jump On,” drawing inspiration from the Seattle transportation system for his design. “Growing up in the 90’s and 00’s downtown Seattle was a ‘ride free’ area,” Fibonacci reflects. “These colors are based on the color schemes of the buses I rode as a kid and young adult.”
“Target Forever II” by Naoko Morisawa is inspired by her personal life goal: Set your own target to live a better life. She’s especially inspired by MLB pitcher Shohei’ Otani’s target of mastering the fastball. The piece is handcrafted with oil-stained wood and paper mosaic painting.
Supergraphics is honored to partner with the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture to enrich the community.
