Community | Artist Spotlight
In the West Chelsea Arts Building, artists have access to one another for inspiration. One artist who is playing a big role in the art-world at large is West Chelsea artist, painter and publisher, Scotto Mycklebust. Located only a few doors down from Rodney, Scotto's studio is packed full of paintings on large canvases. His desk, buried in the back corner of the studio, is where he creates his current masterpiece: Revolt Magazine.
"Over time it has become very clear to me that the medium is just a vehicle," he says. "I find that limiting yourself as an artist or staying within one particular field of art just does not cut it these days. As economic systems globalize and the media landscape becomes more complex, it's important to expand your practice. Multitasking is part of our nature today."
Revolt Magazine is currently engaged in a David and Goliath-esque battle over it's name, initiated by Sean Diddy Combs's new media venture, Revolt TV. Through Revolt, Scotto urges the art community at large to join his efforts in "generating positive social change through creative production and informed cultural critique." Please take a moment to visit www.revoltmagazine.org and side with the support of sustaining this outstanding "community platform for independent, alternative voices in the Arts."
