Artsy on Escape Into Life: Dwayne Butcher

1 May

Sometimes the simplest work can be the most powerful.  I’m really drawn to these graphic, color-blocked paintings by Dwayne Butcher that I’ve posted over on Escape Into Life today.  Go check ’em out!

    Thanks for posting about his work — it was neat to check out his website to discover more of his works. Simplicity can pack a punch in a direct way that complex, layered work takes a while to get to. His short letters are great — I really liked the ones to Bill Cosby and Hipster!

      Yes, loved the letters! The one to the city of Nashville may have been my fave.😉

        Thanks for the post. And I do HATE Nashville.

          Haha, Dwayne! I visited there with a friend a few years ago and couldn’t really see what all the fuss was about. But I do have several friends who love it there.

          Glad you stopped by!

      Glad you enjoyed them! I love how striking they are visually and cutting verbally.
