A blank canvas is something which doesn’t exist in the world of Chad Wys. An American mixed media artist (and I mean mixed media in every sense of the word), Wys creates his artwork using anything from old paintings to china plates, making his mark on the work of others. Vivid, solid colours stand proud against their backgrounds, giving forgotten pieces of artwork a new lease of life.
