Statement From Bryce Chisholm:
"I've worked in every medium from oil, acrylic, water color, spray paint and basically anything I can get my hands on. Lately I have been making a lot of stencil art with spray paint and combining that with acrylics, oils and water colors for a really unique effect.
My process begins with drawing my subject onto coated sheets and then cutting out the details with an exacto knife. This step can range in one to nine layers, depending on how many I feel is necessary to get my desired results. The stencil is then applied with spray paint to a colorful acrylic and mixed media background, one layer at a time. Very similar to a printing or screen printing process, the layers are built on top of one another. After the spray paint has dried more hand painted acrylic is added for highlights, details and to help tie the painting together. I like the different paints to mix together leaving the audience to wonder where one starts and the other begins.
My subjects range from children, women and animals to airplanes, helicopters and nostalgic propaganda. I like my art to be full of color and filled with powerful images that people can relate to. I produce a lot of work and like to constantly improve my art through experimentation. I will paint on just about anything I have around, as I am currently painting on canvas, water color paper, panel boards, skateboard decks, magnets and even the hood of a car."
