Special Instructions

The abandoned buildings and polluted underpasses, places where graffiti thrives, still inform the aesthetics of Born’s fine art, as does his career as an auto-mechanic. He incorporates the grime and trash of those derelict spaces with the grease and rust of the auto shop to compose images of beauty from castoffs and found objects, allowing the materials to guide his creative process.
