• Painted Newspaper Prints by Evan Hecox.

    Posted on 30th May, by Dana Tomić Hughes in art, graphics + illustration. 4 Comments


    Dark Island is a series of mixed-media works by Denver-based artist Evan Hecox, currently on show at the Joshua Liner Gallery in New York City. Evan has a passion for exploring unfamiliar cities with his vintage Polaroid camera in hand, which he later uses to recreate impressions left behind in his memory. These beautiful artworks are created using acrylic and gouache on vintage newspaper, capturing Hecox’s explorations of lower Manhattan and west Brooklyn in New York City.

    I really love the way these pieces take a humble medium like broadsheet to a whole new level, using beautiful imagery and brilliant colour choices, and in turn giving them a new lease of life. Extreme love!
