EPISODE NOTES:

This week we return to Pueblo to visit with Mathias Valdez, a silkscreen printmaker from Pueblo Creative Corridor, Colorado Certified.

Mathias loves this idea of repurposed art. That’s really his process – just taking things that he’s seen before, or that you’ve seen before, taking them apart and putting them back together into something completely different. He really likes that style of design and art because of that familiarity between you and this image, but the thing that’s different is that it’s not the same thing. It’s not what you started out with; it’s totally different.

Why are you drawn to design and art? It’s a big question, so please consider sharing your thoughts in the comments below!

MATHIAS’ BIO:

Mathias is not an ‘artist.’ Every idea has already been imagined, so Mathias doesn’t try to make things that you have never seen before. Instead he wants to take things you have seen a million times and make them look different and new and bright and fun. Mathias wants to take unnoticed things and make them resonate with you, and in the end he wants you to be able to find some meaning in what was once insignificant.
