By creating eye-catching, colorful and emotional works of art on reclaimed scrap metal, David Nyquist automatically challenges the traditional thinking that â€œpaintingsâ€ require new material to evoke emotions. Definitely not the case here.
In addition to reclaimed metal, David Nyquist suspended his works using reclaimed, outdated ethernet cable. A no-brainer procedure other artists should think about adopting. David is part of Art Project Reclamation, a Fernseed collaboration.
