My sculptor friend Chuck Baxter was one of the artists who had their portrait drawn by the www.4traits.com at the Artomatic opening last Friday. Here's a picture of the drawing the four artists in 4traits did.
Four people sit across a table from four artists. The artists work on the portrait of the person seated across from them for about 5 minutes. When the 5 minutes are up, the person and their portrait move on to the next artist, like an artistic assembly line. The next artist picks up where the last artist left off, continuing to build on the previous artist's work, adding lines, shapes, shadows, texture, color...until all four artists have worked on all four portraits.
4traits are Assembly Line Portraits created by a group of four emerging artists from Washington, DC: Brandon Bloch, Alex Slater, Rob Stelboum, and Ming Yi Sung Zaleski. These four artists come from diverse backgrounds, with artistic talent in different media (graphic, video, textile, illustration)… but they all bring their strengths together to create tag-team portraits as a collective group. They have a web page www.4traits.com
