Aaron Kaufman is a graphic artist and Illustrator based in Montreal, Canada. He has worked with several agencies and collaborated on projects with major clients while pursuing his personal interests as a freelance artist. Drawing inspiration from his surroundings and everyday life, Aaron enjoys creating imagery by disassembling and dissecting thoughts, concepts and patterns, and reassembling them using a multidisciplinary approach to create impactful, dynamic and thought provoking work.
Tackling everything from America’s obsession with guns, obesity and fast food culture, Aaron brings us a stunning work of art. Aaron brings us…”My Merica”.
These are Aaron’s words on the genesis of “My Merica”: “This piece began as an exercise of juxtaposition, by taking colloquialisms, news headlines and visuals, and mixing them together to create imagery. The expression “my ‘merica” was a catalyst in the creation of this piece, as I tried to imagine how contemporary America could be portrayed and understood in the world. It became a response to the constant news headlines and media stories in the US: gun control, school shootings, weight loss, obesity and fast food culture.“
“My Merica” is a 18 x 24 inch Archival Pigment Print on 310 GSM Bright White 100% cotton archival paper with a signed and numbered edition of 50. It was printed by 1xRUN.
“My Merica” will be available on Wednesday June 25th, 2014 at 3:00 PM EST on Inside The Rock Poster Frame webstore
