An artist profile of a highly skilled visual artist, Andre Woolery. Post production for this video was completed by me in Austin and was filmed and directed by Victor AbiJaoudi II in NYC. Photographic stills were used to create the motion graphic design in After Effects.
"He calls it 'The Tackover' - a canvas pricked with over 7,000 thumbtacks that form a meditative image of hip-hop icon Jay-Z. Artist Andre Woolery utilises everyday objects to produce meticulously rendered renditions of black icons in pop culture. His Mixtape series, in which he also recreates images of Kanye West, Jimi Hendrix, President Barack Obama and a $100 bill, was curiously inspired by the colourful rings of breakfast cereal Fruit Loops." - Article excerpt from The Daily Mail by Jennifer Madison.
