Artist Blog: Rashaad Newsome

Rashaad Newsome is a multidisciplinary artist whose work blends several practices together including collage, sculpture, video, music, computer programming and performance, to form an altogether new field. Best known for his visually stunning collages housed in custom frames, Newsomes’ work is deeply invested in how images used in media and popular culture communicate distorted notions of power.

One of my favorite pieces is Cognitive Dissonance (2016) which is a mixed media collage on paper. (photo below)cognitive-dissonance-800x865



He received a BFA in Art History at Tulane University in 2001. In 2004, he received a certificate of study in Digital Post Production from Film/Video Arts Inc. I think his pieces are very innovative because of the way he uses mixed media. It also are images that are very one of a kind and I LOVE his style.

I also really love King of Arms (2015) and it can be seen below:

His website has so many things of his and I really enjoyed scrolling through it and looking at all his art.
