Scratching the Surface

Artist Michael Fitts paints on found scrap metal using a highly effective photorealistic technique. He prefers to use scrap pieces that have markings, distressed paint or dents and scratches that were produced before he discovered the piece. The subjects he paints draw from the most generic of popular culture objects with an emphasis on objects that are used once, then discarded and quickly forgotten.
