ART THAT’S INSPIRING | trey speegle

The nostalgia that paint by numbers have in my heart are taken to a whole new level with this work by Trey Speegle. I remember spending countless hours trying to perfectly color realistic versions of horses or flowers onto these thin canvases that I could parade around with and show off to my parents and grandparents. Mixing typography with this childhood obsession is so fantastic in my mind.

Referencing something that so many people have an emotional or historical attachment to is very good art sense, and I applaud Trey for playing on these different contexts. It’s something to keep in mind while designing.
