DEAR ART LOVERS,

WELCOME TO THIS UNIQUE WEBSITE FEATURING MANHOLE ART
The question most people ask is “Why did you ever pick such a ridiculous theme?” Some people even shake their heads when they think about the mundane iron covers we all walk over.
Well, it all began when I was a Mom going back to college to study art. I experimented in every style and medium possible.
Master Printer, Dan Welden advised me to settle on one style or medium. The distinguished professor of Art History, Lawrence Alloway looked at my little album of art creations and said, “You have a penchant for circles!”
Here are some of Mastrangelo’s Early Works:
What a conundrum?
“! how could I develop a style or theme using circles”? I wondered.
Eureka! One day I discovered two pages containing manhole cover photographs! Wow! “What a perfect theme! for me ” That was 1979 and I am still doing “Grate Works!”
