Nick Gentry paints portraits of fit, young people onto collections of old discarded floppy disks. These pieces are interesting to me, with the importance that our popular culture places on the shiny and new.
Nick Gentry is a British artist from London. Much of his artistic output has been generated with the use of contributed artefacts and materials. He states that through this process “contributor, artist and viewer come closer together”. His art is influenced by the development of consumerism, technology and cyberculture in society, with a distinctive focus on obsolete media.
