It’s always nice when a young artist transforms something old into something new. It shows they are looking at something other than peers and the latest releases for inspiration. Such is the case of Chad Wys‘s beautifully done American Tapestry series.
“Appropriated and original digital and mixed media images inspired by American history,” the collection was produced with a blend of modern mediums, mainly digital photography and manipulation. All our favorite museum goodies—oil paintings, vases, busts—are given a fresh treatment, in the form of meltdowns, pixelations, and yes, graffiti.
“Deconstruction is a major part of my thought process in and out of the studio,” states the Illinois-based artist. “My artwork is also, at its core, an experimentation in composition, color, and form. Through a variety of mixed media I have chosen as my inspiration a color palette that is at times complimentary and at other times purposefully contradictory, or seemingly destructive.”
