TYPES – a series of large scale drawings by Umberto Crenca

Umberto Crenca’s TYPES series appears in the windows of the RI Housing Authority, Washington and Eddy Streets. “A constant in my work is trying to achieve a presence: I don’t want my work to be passive or purely decorative. The composition of these pieces – all staring straight forward, forcing the viewer to make eye contact – is intentionally confrontational”. Other pieces from TYPES are at 233 Westminster St., and larger examples are on the historic facade of the former Providence National Bank on Weybosset, courtesy of The Avenue Concept.
