PREACHER began working under this alias towards the end of 2016. Known mostly for his widespread wheat-pasting campaigns, Preacher resides and practices canvas based fine art in his hometown in Alabama. Most prolific in New Orleans, La., the contemporary folk/street-artist incorporates many advertising themes and techniques into his public works. The medium of choice for this muralist is wheat paste. For gallery-based work, mixed media and acrylic/aerosol are commonly used. Known to use several types of paper (from wax blueprints, vintage music sheets, WWI journal entries, etc.) in his works, Preacher experiments with the concepts of familiarity and historical depth. To connect with the viewer on an emotional level, realistic portraits and characters in a combination with text and limited color choice are intended to trigger visual curiosity; yet juxtaposed with drips to confuse the viewer. Though based in the “bible-belt” of the Southeast, Preacher’s plethora of work is not religiously charged. A visual dialogue is created in most of his works, drawing from themes of economics and commonly accompanied with aggressive sticker, moniker, and wheat pasting techniques. Letter of interest. I am in search of a platform to connect myself with others and others with myself. I believe that showcasing my work at 121 will bolster to exposure of the line of works I have created. I believe I am in an important point in my artistic career, as the past ear has been full of small shows, media attention, and large mural painting. I have gained more traction and continued to paint at a voracious pace. In terms of design. My work is designed top evoke feeling in the viewer. It is designed to breathe power and self-being into the viewers. The alias and concepts are always changing but the real grit of it falls back on the simple concept of vandalism. This art is vandalism. Vandalism typically has negative social impact, however if this concept were to be reversed, a more positive experience of the artwork should be gained.
