Andre Petterson presents stunning, albeit messy, mixed-media pieces in his latest collection. Inspired by music and the idea of movement, his work breathes new life into the popular mixed-media art form.

Based in Vancouver, Andre Petterson uses photos of objects such as bicycles, typewriters and sewing machines as his foundation. From there, he layers these images with carefully chaotic brushstrokes that seem to have a natural rhythm about them, just like the music they are inspired by.

Absolutely mesmerizing, the resulting abyss that Andre Petterson creates will surely inspire viewers to contemplate life and death, creation and destruction, not to mention the current existence of the objects in his work. The pieces are enticing and always alluring. Stats for Chaotic Cycle Canvasses Trending: Older & Mild
