Scott Scheidly - 'Halo'- acrylic on masonite - 27.9 x 35.6cm (11"x14")
Scott Scheidly is an artist living and working in Orlando, Florida. On his website, Scheidly explains how his first art project started when he ate a 10-pack of crayons as a baby, “thus turning his diaper into a Jackson Pollock.” Only sixteen years later he graduated from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Probably most famous for his “Pink Series,” Scheidly depicts notorious dictators, Hollywood celebrities and contemporary politicians bathed in hues of pinks and purples, presenting a satirical analysis of power, corruption and masculinity. In a humorous yet somewhat shocking and predictably offensive way, Scheidly opens room for the discussion of societal norms.
