As a Cincinnati artist with childhood memories enjoying the Cincinnati Bengals, D_FALT was commissioned to create this celebratory and powerful backdrop for the new Bengals jersey reveal photoshoot. Putting new theories to the test, this concrete mural not only utilizes living moss, it is also much lighter than previous concrete works and equally durable.

With a deep connectedness to the city of Cincinnati, D_FALT offers a modern, colorful perspective to the streets he loves. Showcasing his unique skills in design, programming, and mixed media fabrication, this 3D piece is part mechanical and part handmade from high quality PVC board, resin, and acrylic paint.
In a world that celebrates perfection in celebrities and social media influencers, this portrait “billboard” celebrates authenticity. The rich texture from D_FALT’s custom engineered air-crete highlights this authentic, unfiltered beauty that’s found within every ‘common person’ we otherwise pass on the street… leaving unrecognized / untitled.
The Abstraction Kills, The Concrete Saves
February 10, 2021
Abstraction can be an entertaining and useful activity. But every abstraction falsifies reality simply because it is an abstraction – it is a one-sided emphasis on certain aspects of the real at the expense of neglecting or even denying others. That is not necessarily harmful as long as we remember what we have done. But the abstraction, being simpler and more manageable than the real world, is a seductive fantasy, and the temptation to ignore messy reality and attempt to replace it with a clean and neat dreamworld.
