… I originally said I stood the longest in front of this piece of Calvin’s work. There is actually another one I will have to add to the site soon commanding that distinction.
Still, this is brilliant work, fantastically detailed and reminiscent of not one thing, but many.
What is it that I like so much about these pieces? Color, no doubt, bright. saturated color suggesting a truly creative mind. Color also suggesting lightness, comedy, and fun.
For me, there is a ‘circus-like nature to these pieces. Something about them says: ‘I am here to make you smile.’
They make me smile…
