2. 191 Westminster Street

Michael Guadagni

I love things of a fantastical nature; based in reality but pushed beyond the limits of
what we conventionally know. A lot of my work is influenced by play: toys, fantasy-based narratives, role-playing games (and associated with the nerd culture). As a professional band photographer, I'm also heavily influence by music and the aesthetics of band culture in Providence.

These seeds of inspiration grow in my mind to become tangible playthings unlike any others that I know. I re-purpose existing fabrics by creating new surfaces and using them to construct my characters. I hand-draw detailed patterns that I then
screen print in layers, and I draw stitches and applique to create new textiles.
