Artist of the Day…Hollis Brown Thornton

Another awesome 80’s inspired artist today – Hollis Brown Thornton. I’m super excited to share his work because it’s got that vintage look and borrows inspiration from 80’s graphics and technology. This South Carolina native uses bothe illustration and printmaking processes to create his awesome pieces.

I love this sort of stuff…it’s abstract, but you can still get the basic gist of the subject matter. Plus, the colors are vibrant and I’ll love anything that takes a hint from the 80’s. You can purchase prints and skins from Hollis’s website…which is exactly what I plan to do!
