An Abstract Mixed Media Artist I’m Following

One of the artists that I have really enjoyed is Shawn Wolter. Shawn is an artist in West Des Moines, IA that does mixed media abstracts. He uses a combination of spray paint, acrylic, and other materials to create imaginative works that combine Pollack like drips with an almost graffiti style wash. I particularly like his use of texture, which is hard to see on a picture, but awesome in person.

Shawn does a lot of our local Des Moines shows, but also travels around the Midwest doing shows as well. I am hoping to buy a grouping of small works or perhaps a series of his works after the first of the year.

Shawn’s web site is www.shawnwolter.com.
