ABSTRACT CITY MAP ON PAPER      MOAA KIEELARR SERIES      PHILIPPE HALABURDA STUDIO     2022

Violetville

About the theme of "Violetville"

 In my abstract maps depicting Violetville, I aim to capture the essence of
this charming neighborhood in Southwest Baltimore, Maryland, using purple
and blue hues to evoke its distinctive character.

Just as the name suggests, purple represents the vibrant spirit and sense
of community that permeates Violetville, while blue symbolizes the tranquil atmosphere and historical significance of the area.

Through color and geometric abstraction, I seek to convey the unique blend
of old-world charm and mid-century modern architecture that defines
the neighborhood.  

The swirling patterns and flowing lines in my abstract maps reflect the winding streets and interconnected pathways of Violetville, where well-kept rowhouses from the 1950s and 60s stand alongside older farmhouses dating back
to the turn of the previous century.

Each brushstroke and curve represents the neighborhood's rich tapestry
of history and culture, inviting viewers to explore its hidden gems
and architectural wonders.

Through juxtaposing purple and blue colors, I aim to capture the dynamic interplay between tradition and modernity that defines Violetville.  

As viewers immerse themselves in my abstract maps, they are invited
to embark on a visual journey through Violetville, where purple and blue hues blend seamlessly to paint a picture of a community steeped in nostalgia
and vitality.

By embracing the unique colors and forms of the neighborhood,
I hope to convey a sense of pride and appreciation for Violetville's rich heritage and vibrant character.

Through the language of abstract art, I aim to celebrate the beauty
and diversity of Southwest Baltimore's hidden gem, inviting viewers
to discover the magic of Violetville for themselves.
