paint by numbers
Using one of the world’s largest collection of vintage paint-by-number paintings as inspiration, Trey Speegle explores themes of hope, love, longing and transformation by recontextuliazing vintage paint-by-numbers with word play that has a broad pop appeal. He works in New York’s Meatpack District and is producing there his acryl paintings on canvas or huge murals. This pop art is bold, bright, couleurful and uses typography which I -off course- like a lot, but it gives also a nostaligic feeling to the whole paint-by-numbers childhood memories.
What a neat paint by numbers! Love your blog! Thanks for sharing.
