Nick Gentry – Obsolete Social Art

17 Dec 2012

Nick Gentry uses obsolete media especially floppies and film negatives to create stunning portraits.

Who will imagine that someday floppy disks and film negative artworks will come to replace common brushstroked canvases? Nowadays, all the stereotypes come undone and the mediums and materials for creating artworks amazingly differ from old ones. Moreover they develop day by day.

Here, we represent a British artist, Nick Gentry whose unusual artistic output has been generated with the use of contributed artefacts and materials. He has a distinctive focus on the usage of obsolete media especially floppies and film negatives transmitting them into stunning paintings. He places an emphasis on recycling obsolete media and the reuse of personal objects as a central theme, being influenced by the development of consumerism, technology, identity and cyberculture in society.

Nicholas James Gentry aka Nick Gentry is a British artist from London born 29 May 1980. His artistic works of social commentary have been featured in galleries in the UK, USA and in cities throughout the world. His work has been exhibited alongside established street artists and as such has been linked to the urban art scene in London.
