Title:
Rotating Graffiti Artist Work Station
Kind Code:
A1


Abstract:
A rotating kiosk which will provide an artistic platform for graffiti artist. Each participant will be issued a card that will give him access to the process. Once the card is inserted in the kiosk and the I.D. secured, the canvass surface will unfurl electronically. Upon completion, the participant reinserts the card and the painting spools back into the kiosk. Simultaneously a new canvass unfurls and the process begins again.

Periodically, the executed paintings will be removed from the spooled cylinder and a blank canvass cylinder inserted at each Kiosk location, then returned to the studio for our esthetic triage jury review. Those paintings that are deemed to have achieved significant artistic value and market potential are photographed, framed and submitted to selected galleries and the electronic marketplace for sale.

BACKGROUND

My curiosity and familiarity with the creative struggle of all gifted people and in particular a desire to provide an alternative to incarceration for talented graffiti artists, whose work would otherwise vanish in a shower of detergent gave birth to the rotating kiosk invention a modular painters work station. The following addresses the problem of Urban Graffiti in an imaginative and artistically sensitive manner providing the gifted artist a positive and financially rewarding alternative to incarceration for the exercise of his intuitive creative ability.

SUMMARY (SEE DRAWING NO: 1, 2, 3, ATTACHED HEREWITH) OF CLAIM

OPERATION OVERVIEW

I have designed a rotating kiosk (provisional patent application No. 60943346) which will provide an artistic platform for the budding graffiti artist. Based upon certain criteria, he will be given the opportunity to receive a portion of the royalties from his effort once the individual painting has been sold in the gallery or the open market.

Each participant will be issued a card that will give him access to the process. Once the card is inserted in the kiosk and the I.D. secured, the canvass surface will unfurl electronically. Upon completion, the participant reinserts the card and the painting spools back into the kiosk. Simultaneously a new canvass unfurls and the process begins again.

MECHANICS OF THE OPERATION: Periodically, the executed paintings will be removed from the spooled cylinder and a blank canvass cylinder inserted at each Kiosk location, then returned to the studio for our esthetic triage jury review. Those paintings that are deemed to have achieved significant artistic value and market potential are photographed, framed and submitted to selected galleries and the electronic marketplace for sale. Funds received are deposited in the non-profit operating company and expenses paid accordingly.

CONCLUSION:

This memorandum represents a capsule look at, what I believe to be, a substantial breakthrough in the vandalism and destruction of private and public property by urban gangs of rogue graffiti artists.

This memorandum represents a capsule look at, what we believe to be, a substantial breakthrough in the vandalism and destruction of private and public property by urban gangs of rogue graffiti artists.

It is my belief that substantial artistic talent is being misdirected and their mission of dissent compromised because they lack a civilized forum for the viewing of their revolutionary visual art. They also lack a vehicle that will compensate them for their noble effort and the recognition of their peer group—the legitimate artistic culture of the 21st century.
