“Marking Lost Space”: Jasper Jongeling’s Street Art Shows Places from the Past

Marking Lost Space - Street Art by Jasper Jongeling

Jasper Jongeling is a graphic designer from the Netherlands, who says his work “is based on straight forward graphical elements with a lot of attention payed to detail.” In Marking Lost Space, Jongeling uses historic photographs and architectural plans to discover what buildings formerly occupied a site. He then creates an outline of the old buildings on that location using bright yellow tape. These two-dimensional line drawings rely on perspective tricks to re-create the three-dimensional buildings. This street art “shows you the transience of┬áthe city and takes the passer-by to lost sights and places from the past,” according to the artist’s statement.
