“Concrete Jungle” – Dan Moses


PREACHER began working under this alias towards the end of 2016. Known
mostly for his widespread wheat-pasting campaigns, Preacher resides
and practices canvas based fine art in his hometown in Alabama. Most
prolific in New Orleans, La., the contemporary folk/street-artist
incorporates many advertising themes and techniques into his public
works. The medium of choice for this muralist is wheat paste. For
gallery-based work, mixed media and acrylic/aerosol are commonly used.
Known to use several types of paper (from wax blueprints, vintage
music sheets, WWI journal entries, etc.) in his works, Preacher
experiments with the concepts of familiarity and historical depth. To
connect with the viewer on an emotional level, realistic portraits and
characters in a combination with text and limited color choice are
intended to trigger visual curiosity; yet juxtaposed with drips to
confuse the viewer. Though based in the “bible-belt” of the Southeast,
Preacher’s plethora of work is not religiously charged. A visual
dialogue is created in most of his works, drawing from themes of
economics and commonly accompanied with aggressive sticker, moniker,
and wheat pasting techniques.
