About Calvin Whitehurst

Calvin Whitehurst is an Interdisciplinary artist living and working in Milwaukee,WI.

My work is concerned with the conditions that create our sense of reality and the supposed “information givers” that set these conditions. Through my work in collage, sculpture, and painting I explore why and how we follow, where and when we fail in this following, and underline the responsibility the leaders have to the followers.

I am also interested in critical art writing and seeing where this can take me. This blog serves a dual purpose in showing insight into my creative process as well as showcasing my thoughts about the local and broader art context.

  1. Welcome aboard, Calvin. You’ve just given us the funniest 10 minutes we’ve had all day. We laughed till the tears ran down our legs … no, not your ‘About’ page but your interview with Buck Weber.
    It’s a pleasure to meet you; we’ll row over often.
    Best wishes,
    Miles and Pippa

    • the only thing you can do when youre in my situation is write things like that. The sad thing is a lot of it based off of artists I am surrounded by daily. sigh. glad you liked it.
