Kokomo Howard County Public Library’s visiting artist for July is Chad Wysong. Wysong is a Kokomo-native and current senior at the Herron School of Art and Design. He got his start in art at an early age through family activities and school.
With a more traditional background in drawing, it wasn’t until college that he turned to digital media and design. Presently, working as a designer at Klipsch Marketing & Advisors, he has gotten his hands on a wide variety of projects from Indycars to magazines. His sights remain set on a future as a branding and ux designer. This poster collection represents a handful of personal experiments in digital media.
“My hope is that people can find some small pleasure in these. It truly is just a series of refinements that were made to notebook sketches or born from moments of daydreaming," he said.
You can find more examples of Wysong's work on his website at chadwysong.myportfolio.com. Locally, a mural in his Creative Explosive series may be viewed in Artist Alley, located in historic downtown Kokomo.
KHCPL’s main gallery is located at 220 N. Union Street. Hours are Monday – Thursday from 9 am – 8 pm and Friday and Saturday from 9 am – 5:30 pm. The exhibit runs through July 31st.
