Scribbles: an Urban Art series by Lisa Tureson is inspired by a simple Danish wall.  Walking the streets of Copenhagen, Denmark on a summer day she saw a painted, white wall. The paint was peeling and deteriorating, revealing layers of colors, papers, street art and writings. This wall has had many faces. With the white bicycle parked alongside the wall it was a perfect representation of this old and ever changing, modern city.  The Scribbles series presents this idea with a softer and gentler hand. Tureson’s love of mixed media is evident as she uses smooth and gritty plasters, acrylics, ink, spray paint and papers. Surfaces are built up with heavy bodied material and sanded down after the color and media is incorporated.  This process is repeated until each piece is layered and exposes what came before. 
Lisa Tureson’s inspiration for painting began at a young age while painting at her mother’s art studio. Her pieces including those in The Scribbles series are compressed with variations of abstract, trompe L’Oeil, stylized realism, and expressionism marking her aesthetic to be unique and eye catching. The use of Tureson’s acrylic, mixed media, color and line expression dance through each of her canvases harmoniously to create a visual story in the viewer’s imagination.
