The sketches by American artist Hollie Chastain wonderfully bring together a retro style with a bright splash of colors.
Using aged, yellow paper as her canvas, Chastain incorporates elements like scribbles, vintage photography and ink to create a series of abstract figures and shapes. All these art mediums come together to create a surreal representation of bizarre ideas. She cuts the subjects out of her photographs to paste them onto the paper and decorates them with colorful doodles or rainbow-hued streaks. Instead of focusing so much on the meaning of each piece, Chastain prefers to enjoy how all the materials interact with each other.
Hollie Chastain states in her websites that “she creates a world of adventure and secrets open for the viewer’s interpretation.” Her unique combination of artistic elements, bold hues and intricate doddles will keep audiences wanting more.
