Artist Statement

Dylan Humphreys is an artist from British Columbia.

Humphreys approaches the physical experience and tradition of art while simultaneously contrasting and incorporating the world of non-art. An appreciation of contemporary aesthetics through works of comics, hip-hop, and film is an essential part of the imagining behind his narrative.
Dylan's work explores the relationship between the artist's body, mind, and surrounding political structure. Humphreys prefers to operate at a spontaneous rate out of an urgent desire to complete works that also imbues a relationship to performance.
In a sardonic call to arms, Dylan has sought to find a way for his work to perform in a derisively functional property akin to the devices of propaganda.
