David Chevtaikin is a cutting edge artist from New York City who incorporates fabrics, textiles and graffiti into his work. Chevtaikin understands himself as a strong player in the new art revolution with his strong, self-assured style characterised by a judicious use of colour, eye for form and proportion and a passion for bold brush strokes and graffiti. Juxtaposing the mediums and depictions of classical ideas in art with modern content and graffiti street art, the artist hopes to invoke a constant evolution of possibilities in his work.
Layered atop a nebulous cross, Mickey Mouse the God of entertainment, emerges, however different to his traditional depiction, the character is made up of a colourful image of a woman looking out towards the viewer with several black graffiti marks. By incorporating two different characters, Chevtaikin plays on the idea of worship, both in religion and media and thus ends up creating negative undertones to the work.
