I’d love to be shithot at Photoshop. To be fair, I wasn’t too shabby at art college, where I began focusing on digital art. Maybe one day I’ll put in the practice. It’s on the list. It’s unlikely I’ll ever get this good though. Max Asabin is a Russian artist doing, well, amazing stuff.
One of the reasons I’m working under a new b(r)and name has to do with that pulling all this together for the listener.
I could put this out as Kris Halpin, but that doesn’t tell you anything about what is and why it’s different.
My art college brain likens the difference between Kris Halpin, Winter Of ’82 and now Dyskinetic as being that of a series of works, the way a painter may create a series.
If you make art for yourself and no one else, then make whatever you want. If you make art for the rest of us and you’re interested in having us appreciate and understand what you’re up to, you better make it in ways that give us a fighting chance to figure it out.
