New print release: this week we are excited to be working with artist Warren Dykeman to bring you his print Candy for Transportation Alternatives. This piece is dense with colors and imagery, it really begs to be studied, not just viewed. I enjoyed reading more about Warren’s influences in his artist interview:
Warren’s work is informed by the Cold War era Americana that surrounded him in those formative years. His paintings and drawings draw upon elements of folk art, handmade sign lettering, digital art, and collage. Utilizing a variety of materials, Warren creates work that contains an intriguing awkwardness which produces a rhythm between contour, color, and mistake. With a nod to the past, Warren embraces the new technology of the digital age, combining his experience as a graphic designer to create compositions that use vector style graphics as a jump off for his unique take on primitive folk art styles.
Warren has choosen Transportation Alternatives because it seems that you see more on a bike rather than when enclosed in an automobile. Plus, you are not burning fossil fuels.
