Michael Dotson I Feel Pretty 2014 acrylic on panel
Michael Dotson is a 33-year-old Buckeye* now living in Brooklyn. Like all the best children of the 90s - he loves classic Disney cartoons. Importantly, even never seeing Pocahontas, Dotson can sing 'Colors of the Wind' - he's that talented.
His other artistic outlet is reimagining scenes from all the great Disney movies - using an actual single animation frame as a starting point. In a super flat and precise style, he takes the original on a painterly trip. The result is a strange, nostalgic, wonderful.
Wowee + Cuevas Tilleard favorite, the painter Alex Ebstein described his work as:
"Movie theater and bowling alley carpets, bus seat upholstery and allover print sweatshirts.”
