Reo

Medium: Paint/assemblage

Description:  Graffiti mixed with relic found assemblage art

I’m a graffiti artist that just happened to find a bunch of cool old rusty things along my travels. I collected them simply because I liked how they looked. Then one day I realized a few of them kind of shared a bond so I placed them together and realized I had to do something with them. I made one piece with no intentions of making others. But then I was like, oh wait, I can breath life back into these dead things? I’ve been hooked since. Constantly on the hunt, sometimes I’m now in abandoned structures without paint even which seems crazy to me. Now I find myself in rivers with waders at 6 am and metal detectors collecting old bottles, bones and relics!!! I’d like to find a way to start breeding the two art forms together. Combining them is something that is rarely done
