Cory Arcangel was born in 1978 and currently resides in New York where he produces many different medias of art such as; Drawing, Video, Performance, Music, and most commonly and well know for producing Video Game Modifications. Cory’s work focuses on the use of intense colors and vibrant use of space to contrast the gallery in which it stands. He has a interesting approach to editing video games by taking certain aspects or ideas from a game that he likes and making them his own by subtracting or adding other materiels to enhance the image.
For me, Cory’s work is made to look quite simple and the use of overlapping material gives it new textures and viewing angles. Making new things out of easily identifiable objects that we see everyday puts a new spin on how we interpret these things. His work does a great job of bringing out new colors that might otherwise be overlooked such as accents. His work is very easy and pleasing to view as well as a great way to incorporate intricate designs into his work.
