USING PAINT ON CARDBOARD, AN ARTIST ALLOWS HIS MATERIALS TO “REVEAL MYTHOLOGICAL CHARACTERS”
The self-taught artist Cour d’Blax-Neeck (Instagram: @courdblaxneeck), who is based in California, regularly uses different kinds of found cardboard as a support surface for abstract or randomly patterned paintings and drawings that often include representations of the letter H as a graphic element or that feature H-shaped compositions.
Cour d’Blax-Neeck is affected by Tourette Syndrome (TS).
