I first got to know Nicholas Carron’s work on Instagram where he posts under the name Urban Curse. His work has since spread way beyond the confines of his mobile origins into galleries, museums and books. That is partly because he is a man on a mission. After witnessing first hand the collapse of his once middle class neighborhood in Columbus, he wants to be a part of its rejuvenation through creating awareness about urban decay and raising money for the children who live on the troubled south side of Columbus. All proceeds from the sale of his terrific new book will benefit Columbus Kids: Ready, Set, Learn, led by United Way of Central Ohio.
You can buy his book here and you can follow him on Tumblr.
