Artist: Clint Davidson
Elements: Aerosol paint on corrugated metal
Born in southern Indiana, Clint Davidson moved to Louisville before eventually coming to Columbus to attend CCAD in 1996. Before he had formal training, skateboarding had a heavy influence on his artwork by seeing graffiti artists he would not have otherwise been exposed to. Davidson says the graphics, through the ads, was likely his earliest introduction to looking at other artwork for inspirations.
The piece he created at Easton is the style of painting he’s currently working on, which includes typography, and the shapes are a reference to graffiti. Davidson says the angular, jagged shapes in the background “create layers and have their own personality.”
