Sacred Cows: Featured Artist

Imar Hutchins

Imar Hutchins is a self-taught artist based in Washington, DC.  He works primarily in collage, mixed media and printmaking. Imar‘s portraits combine vintage black magazines, hate mail and other historical documents as well as found objects, tissue paper and new materials.  He imagines that people themselves are collages–amalgams of countless disparate fragments and inputs.  He “remixes” his subjects in new and often Afro-futuristic ways, but always drawing from (or challenging) a historical notion.
