Meet Jack Addis- the man whose art is bringing us millennials back to our digital roots. Addis’ art combines simple, anthropomorphic forms with complex digital patterns. It seems if these pieces were done in MS Paint: crude lines coupled with a limited palette of color. The images are nostalgic, reminding one of the formative years of the Millennial Generation.
A Vietnam War protester holds a placard with a paraphrase of a Muhammad Ali quote: “Ain’t no Vietcong ever called me nigger.” This addresses what I imagine was a major source of struggle and confusion for black Americans eligible for conscription: who is my real enemy? Why am I being forced, under punishment of imprisonment or worse, to risk my life fighting someone whom has never done me wrong?
