Edmond Caputo is a mixed-media artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. His art explores the saturation of stimuli our culture confronts on a daily basis and relates that to formative experiences. Language, sound, architecture, and environmental decay are some of the inspiring sources alluded to in his work. By employing diverse methods for approaching the canvas, beautiful patterns, rhythms, color juxtapositions, and abstract imagery emerge from his compositions. Caputo utilizes his influential surroundings by sourcing discarded components that construct our physical world. He regularly uses scrap metal grates, disposed lath, rope, various fabric, and acrylic plexiglass as tools to paint with or utilize directly in the artwork. Edmond relates his work to formative experiences. Each layer on the canvas is inclined toward a stimulus, be it auditory, linguistic, architectural, or environmental. The composition created is what sparks a dialogue between the viewer and the painting, allowing them to flow between the entire image and each individual layer.
