Connecticut-based artist Kevin Van Aelst has launched a series titled Fingerprints, that showcases the artist's intricate fingerprint patterns in different mediums. Aelst literally and figuratively leaves his mark on typical settings using unconventional mediums that also happen to be common materials used in everyday life.
Juxtaposing a crowd of Cheetos with a Nintendo controller gives you a sense of the character Aelst is representing—a video gamer, probably male, with orange fingers from all his snacking on the salty, cheesy puffs. The series also makes you think of how many things touch our hands everyday...
Selected prints from this series can be purchased on Eye Buy Art.
