Diddo Velema is an all-around visual artist and designer who creates just about everything and anything that a contemporary Renaissance Man can. Velema was actually featured WAY BACK in 2009 BC (“Before the Crash” – check out Nicholas Di Genova’s post for the brief explanation), and we finally bring him back officially from the pile of dope artists who were lost in that infamous Crash of 2009!
Pulled from Velema’s website (mainly because I was too lazy to paraphrase…hey, at least I’m honest):
“Diddo’s goal however, is not to feed us ideas; instead he focuses on re-contextualizing the ideas already there. His works don’t feed us a political agenda, or a carefully curated viewpoint, but rather reawaken the essential debates we tend to neglect…Diddo finds inspiration in examining the space between what we think and what we allow others to think for us. His work is an attempt to define the border between perception and reality,and the process, which turns image into icon.”
