Nolan Reiter was definitely my favorite artist of this week with his unique BPA printmaking. Most of my colleagues had no idea what BPA was, but since my dad works with graphics designing and the likes- I wanted to go to #gatov-east right away. Nolan says that he gets his inspirations from his explorations of the world among the lesser-known communities. He uses vibrant bold colors to depict these fully rich cultured communities and he plans to continue his journeys.
Nolan’s art on money caught my attention. It looked like a buisnessman smiling and marveling at something. The description next to this portrait was how the US could spend millions of dollars on corrupt businesses but not help the lesser communities with heir eoconmic statuses- thus leading to the unjust of social equality in America. This art piece was most likely target at the business corruption in American society, particularly in the Wall Street business. I am so happy to know that we young people are concerned about the economics of the nation, proving to the older generation that we’re not all about social media.
