ditching digital to tell tales

// Thanks for flagging the newsprint monsters by NY artist Nick Georgiou Stimulant! How relevant a time to be inspired by the print world, and its medium. Nick says, “My art is inspired by the death of the printed word. Books and newspapers are becoming artifacts of the 21st century. As a society we’re shifting away from print consumption and heading straight towards full digital lives. My sculptures are products of their environment —both literally and figuratively. As often as I can, I use local newspapers to add authenticity, and the form the sculpture takes is a reflection of the personal connection I feel to that particular city. From a day-to-day standpoint, I’m heavily influenced by my surroundings.”
