CityFabric Figureground Maps

Categories: Art + Graphics

CityFabric Tee of Raleigh, NC. Where it all began.

Don’t just live in your city – wear it! CityFabric‘s core focus is to engage people in conversations about place. Their designs are figureground maps (which show building footprints of cities) on tees, totes, prints, pillows and canvases. Founder Matt Tomasulo says, “It’s our belief that the more people talk about their place, the more people will be involved in their community.”

CityFabric directly interacts with people through their exhibitions. Their recent exhibit New York Scaled featured a 26′ long Manhattan figureground, with a series of smaller canvases of Manhattan and Brooklyn neighborhoods.
