Studio Visit: Chad Muska

Chad Muska‘s back in New York in full blown studio mode, sharing the front area of Haculla’s nefarious New York art vault for a little over six months now. I was lucky enough to get a peek at the making of his latest (hard) work earlier this week; a sparkling series of increasingly abstract pieces, highly textured, explosive in emotion.

The artist’s iconic imagery is meticulously wrecked and tweaked via chemical reaction after it’s printed on the canvas, creating fresh new shapes and depth. A blatant destruction process – perhaps symbolic of a new beginning? One thing’s for sure is it’s real nice to see Muska’s abstract expressionist gene show in this recent direction.

There’s more where that came from – watch out for our upcoming interview & additional pics from the studio!
