In larger cities, street art has become an assertive, unavoidable part of urban life. But in Buffalo, where authorities have tended to treat artistic expression anywhere other than gallery walls with suspicion if not outright hostility, it's just beginning to assume a more recognizable role.

- Colin Dabkowski, City Streets Are Their Canvas, The Buffalo News (online May 2014)
As Buffalonians, our expectations are often far too low. Yes, we should celebrate the new murals and the even newer signal box paintings. We should also demand that some long overdue municipal attention be paid to a new plan for public art.

- Elizabeth Licata, Buffalo Days: More dimensions for Public Art,   Buffalo Spree (online June 2014)
Artists from the Community Canvases project have been busy painting their way across town. Last summer the group left its mark on Elmwood Avenue, and this summer the artists are heading to North Buffalo to tackle Hertel Avenue. In their wake, they leave behind myriad colorful markers – signals that say the community is alive with art.

By taking drab and dreary utilitarian objects and funkifying them, Community Canvases hopes to inspire people to look at their neighborhoods a little differently. What was once a blank steel utility box becomes a blank canvas. That canvas becomes whatever the artist imagines.

- Community Canvases Heads to Hertel,  pub. on Buffalo Rising on June 10, 2014
Q: What are your thoughts on graffiti and street art? Have your murals ever been vandalized? Do you think that there is a place for graffiti and street art in the realm of public art?

A: I recognize the value of all forms of artistic expression, however I have mixed views on graffiti. When used as a standalone piece not meant to deface or vandalize an existing work of art or structure, I believe it can be very beautiful. However, I had a minor experience where one of my murals was vandalized which was very upsetting. To prevent this I commonly use anti-graffiti coating on my murals.
