The shed in my parent's backyard. Lapel, Indiana
22 years young. Working on my BA in Printmaking at the Herron School of Art and Design in Indianapolis, IN. You can find me here: christianbforrer.carbonmade.com/ Or here: etsy.com/shop/HUMANSHOP Here too: facebook.com/christian.b.forrer
Geometric and architectural forms that mirror both my weariness and confidence of the future. I'm drawing from a beautiful, yet growingly ominous midwest landscape. I use a bright, neon and pastel palette to balance a heavier line, and to convey a wishful personal conscious. When composing work, I tend to centralize imagery of the most importance.
The midwest, my friends and my lady, Bob Dylan, and recently Star Wars
I'd take either, but I really just want some general tso's.
Had a few life changing moments in SF, but Vegas was epicly hardcore.
Well, I'm living in a shed right now, so i just wake up and I'm pretty much in the middle of my studio. If I have no money-making schemes to pursue that day, then I'll just work until I'm ready for bed or a movie. Lately I've been listening to a lot of oldies, but mostly the sound of my dogs barking.
I sell work from time to time, but mostly odd jobs and luck. Needless to say, my bills are definitely getting backed up.
I'll start with a general shape or form that I'm interested in. I'm usually thinking about a feeling or emotion that I want to convey. I'll get a collection of drawings and found images together and fill in the blanks. I do a lot of smaller sketches that usually end up being separate pieces to a larger composition. I feel like this gives me more of a narrative approach to my work, without having to create an initial, concrete concept to work from.
I'm a printmaker by trade. I do a lot of silkscreen, etching, and lithography. I'm constantly inking up and printing. When those amenities aren't readily available, I love working with acrylic, ink, and charcoal on found materials and objects.
I'm going to Alaska with my girlfriend in 3 days! We are driving all the way from Indiana, so I'm hoping to see some amazing shit.
Buy a ton of art supplies and a huge plot of land. Take all my friends with me and pay all of our debts. Life would be good.
Breakfast at waffle house, followed by a brisk skate at the local park. Going to all the thrift stores around and finding awesome things for a dollar. Getting free beer samples at the local brewery. Finishing the day at an epic house show in the blazing heat.
Indianapolis has an emerging art scene thats been getting better and larger since I can remember. It's refreshing to know that everything going on artwise is fairly new here. Makes me feel like I'm almost a part of it, as if it's never been more important than it is right now.
I've looked at this site almost everyday, for years. I can't believe I'm filling this out. This is wildly awesome. Yes!
