Dylan Spaysky is inspired by the pop-culture aesthetic of Disney, knickknacks found in suburban homes, children’s crafts, and thrift store dollar-bags. His works are made with cheap materials and found objects, exploring notions of beauty, value, and preciousness. They have a sense of impulsiveness: to salvage, tinker, repurpose, and decorate.
