Garrett Scales

Durham, NC

Garrett Scales received his BA in Anthropology from North Carolina State University. Since 2003, he has created his entire body of work from hand cut stencils and spray paint. Recently, he has begun to explore the use of texture and acrylic paint to add an element of spontaneity to his work. This added element also allows him to contrast the idea of predictability that is afforded by the stencils. Drawing from nature and the human form, he now shapes his work to follow the lines and character of the human face. In doing so he finds it exciting contemplating the infinite possibilities he can imagine in depicting his subject.
