All photographs are an edition 1 of 1 + 1 Artist Proof. Spencer Sloan is a mixed-media artist whose recent work, digitally manipulating paparazzi photographs into abstraction using a series of image-corrupting applications, stems from his years spent as a pop-culture blogger. Sloan received his BFA in Painting from the University of Georgia and studied graphic design at The Creative Circus. In 2015, Sloan was commissioned by Dolby to create a piece for their San Francisco headquarters which was featured in Fast Company magazine. Sloan lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia. In his words, "My work explores the obsession with celebrity culture, the invasion of privacy and the complex issues of ownership of image, appropriation and copyright. I do this by digitally manipulating hi-res paparazzi photographs into pure abstraction with a series of image-corrupting applications—using a ubiquitous modern device (iPhone), turning the voyeuristic into the inviolable, creating a post-modern commentary on societal values in relation to contemporary pop culture."
