HAMILTON STRIP is a new illustrated series by Paul Elia depicting Hamilton cityscapes. Entire city blocks (or strips) are recreated in heavy tones of black, white and gray.
The largest print is 13ft. long, allowing the viewer to literally walk down the block. Focusing on downtown and central Hamilton neighbourhoods, these drawings are meant to highlight the surreal contrast between the industrial history of the city and the residential development around it.
