Titus Kaphar is pushing art into a new space by literally cutting, bending, and painting over…space. It’s a refreshing approach to a medium that can, at times, seem repetitive or empty – you know, shock value for shock value’s sake. But Kaphar’s work has depth, energy, life. He takes classical works and recreates them by adding the black image; that dark figure, historically present but rarely acknowledged. I’m really digging Kaphar’s work and I can’t wait to see what he does next. See more of his dopeness at http://tituskaphar.com/.
