Hand Drawn Illustration & Digital Collage
by Kwasi Boyd-Bouldin
I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember. My creativity has manifested in various ways throughout my life but the one constant has been my drawings. Over the course of the past decade or so I graduated college, started a family, and found some success as a documentary photographer (see www.kwasiboydbouldin.com) but I’ve never been able to let go of my desire to use fine art, design, and typography to interpret the world around me. With that in mind, in 2018 I rededicated myself to drawing and painting regularly. It took almost the entire year to return to form but I’m happy to be able to relaunch my Nonstndrd project this year.
Nonstndrd (pronounced Non Standard) is a concept that I created in 2008 to describe my nontraditional approach to art. My work can be traced directly back to my experimentation with graffiti as a kid and everything else is a result of an insatiable interest in the intersection of art and technology.
