Eddie Braught’s drawings come from the future. That Tomorrowland where it’s the apocalypse and we are wearing technicolor high-fashion HazMat suits just to stay alive.
Recently, Eddie’s detournements tackle images from past, peppering the figures on pages of drawing manuals with headphones, re-envisioning a moment that never happened.
Eddie’s futures and pasts are pretty gorgeous.
One last question: Have you heard Eddie Braught’s album?
