An accomplished graphic designer and illustrator is getting a chance to display his personal art work in Greater Binghamton.
New York City designer Seymour Chwast has a solo exhibition titled “Works of War” on display at the Binghamton University Art Museum.
The paintings, woodcuts and drawings from the past 10 years takes a humorous and light-hearted approach to lampooning armed conflict.
Chwast says war is stupid and only serves to advance the agendas of those in power. “It’s the poor soldiers and the populace in general that suffer on account of that. I think wars are so archaic. There’s got to be a way to settle conflicts.”
Chwast says he doesn’t often get an opportunity to display his personal art work.
He’s on campus this evening for an opening reception.
The exhibition was curated by Associate Professor of Art and Design Blazo Kovacevic.
It will remain up until May 18th.
