Spotlight Artist: Dolan Geiman

Today marks the beginning of a new feature on Junkculture. Every month I’ll be featuring artwork from the online community of artists, designers and photographers. So, to start things off check out the wonderful work of mixed media artist Dolan Geiman. Produced from salvaged wood, found objects, and other recycled materials, Geiman's eco-friendly artwork emerges from a folk art tradition infused with a contemporary, urban style. Originally from Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, Geiman currently lives and works in Chicago along with partner Allison Walsh. His artwork has broad appeal to collectors and decorators alike, successfully weaving together the rural with the urban and the vintage with the contemporary. Motifs such as rural America, woodland creatures "specifically birds," and country music are popular and reoccurring themes, creating an artwork that introduces a modern aesthetic while remaining true to its rustic roots.
