WALTER LOBYN HAMILTON
Lobyn directly uses the vinyl record as a crucial element to resurrect both political activists and musical icons he grew up listening to and who share similar perspectives with each other. He discovered his medium after smashing some of his prized LPs on the floor in a moment of despair and transitioned from DJ to visual artist. The vinyl comes alive in a new way when Lobyn cracks, smashes, cuts and then crafts. His work has been exhibited at Art In FLUX and Scope Miami and other galleries in Chicago and Indianapolis. Lobyn is a 2013 Bombay Sapphire Artist Series Winner.
