i’m jealous of chad wys

In this series, Brutalized Delights, American artist Chad Wys has found his way into to my heart, by choosing thrift shop finds over canvas. And from what I understand, he just graduated from art school this past spring?!* Um, I think it’s pretty safe to say that my student work was nowhere close to being this cool {or this well thought out}. I’m definitely going to keep an eye on him… who knows what he’ll be painting on in five years!

    I’m jealous of him too. The ability to convince people that what he’s doing is somehow interesting is incredible. The barriers between art and used car sales continue to collapse…
