Shawn Huckins' Remixed Body of Work20-Jul-2012
Memes have well and truly become a part of our everyday vernacular and language. There’s no stopping them. Artist Shawn Huckins‘ has started an impressive new series of acrylic paintings seemingly inspired by the meme titled American Revolution Revolution. He artfully combines paintings from the American revolution of the 1700s with vapid words of nothingness that are the result of the technological revolution which has occurred over the last decade. How far have we really come huh? The attention to detail in the paintings are amazing and it’s actually hard to believe they’re not just a digital images. Check out images from the collection above.
