DeShawn Dumas

DeShawn Dumas creates mixed-media wall tablets from various remnants of heavy industry and consumerism, including chain-link fences, steel frames, spray paint, and plexi-glass. His focus is the use of materials that function socially. Obtaining these materials allows Dumas to explore the relationship between handicraft and what he refers to as art’s “relationship to the machine.” Deeply inspired by energy, his works are meant to move the viewer.
