Zach McDonald (86things.com) is an artist/designer who has been working as an independent artist since 2008, when he graduated with his B.A. in painting and drawing. Even though painting is his passion, it is not his only love. Everything around us is beautiful, both natural and man made.
Things inspire him! What are these things? They are the things we use daily, the things we throw away, old and outdated things, the things in nature, the things we eat and drink and the things we wear. As an artist he strives in all his work to look at the things around him and to appreciate the pure aesthetic value of them. Sometimes what things do or how they are used is not nearly as interesting as what they look like or what they could be used for.
As an artist Zach McDonald tries to expose the under appreciated and the uncommon. He tries to look at all things in new and different ways and as a result reinvent or create interesting and inspiring pieces of art.
