Jeremiah Palecek x Art Remix

Posted on August 14, 2009 Under Art

Czech Painter Jeremiah Palecek has caught our attention on two previous occasions with his knack for turning familiar images from the Web into physical manifestations with just a few fancy brushstrokes. In keeping with that theme, Palecek’s latest project turns away from chiefly Web-based subjects as he lends his deft stroke to revamping previously submitted works from the Creative Commons, adding or altering elements to public domain paintings, and then resubmitting them back from whence they came. It’s like the painter’s version of the remix and it’s ever so eye-catching. The one featured (left) is an oil on canvas work called Cowboy Portal. The one next to it? You guessed it: Obama Riding a Mastodon.
