Syracuse University graduate Derek Brahney is a man of multidisciplinary leanings; an illustrator of pictures, designer of objects and ceator of one-off items of fashion. His practise sits somewhere between fine art and product design but sees him applying great ideas to every facet of these different disciplines. But we want to celebrate Derek for the less conceptual side of his oeuvre; his daft but brilliant series of abstract images that pay homage to Mark Rothko, created on his iPhone. Why has he created them? Presumably to demonstrate the fast-decreasing level of skill required to create visual material in the digital age (depressing), or perhaps his motivations are less sinister. Either way we’re enjoying them very much.
