All works by the Wanted Artist Group are each fully collaborative works between three artists–John Wells, Erik Sanner, and Michael Renouard. Some works also contain contributions by guest artists Qian Qian Gao and Megumi Ueda. All works of art often underwent drastic changes as they changed hands. The only rule was that each artist must contribute to the work, and beyond that, there were no rules.
"Aumscape" incorporates the imagery of the tobidashi sign, which is a hand-made plywood sign portraying a cartoonish running child. It is created by community members to warn drivers of cars that children are playing in the area and may run into the street. This image is painted over photos Aum figures made of plywood.
