play it again. Country on the Radio plays to the tune of Americana, remixed. Inspired by his hobby of restoring vintage objects, artist Brett Whitacre purchased this radio from a flea market, refitted it with a modern sound system and added the script "Country" logo salvaged from an American vehicle. In his original artwork, Whitacre reverse spray-painted the image on a found window from the alleys of Chicago, and digitally replicated it on canvas. The authentic texture and color achieve Whitacre's goal to "make it look as real as possible—something I was just beginning to practice as a painter."
brett whitacre. Influenced by vintage and modern advertising, and American history, Chicago-based artist Brett Whitacre creates urban pop art from reclaimed objects, such as old window panes, television sets and luggage. Juxtaposing old and new, he applies his vivid imagery to these unconventional surfaces through a variety of techniques, including illustration, reverse glass painting, stencil work and spray paints controlled by tape and other materials. The resulting work is definitively modern with a contrasting rustic warmth.
