Tomorrow, Saturday October 23rd, Sean Diediker will be hosting a book release party for his new art book, Wax Onion Collaborative. The book is the culmination of the artist’s year-long initiative to harness the power of social media in the creation of his art. Using Facebook as his primary means of communication, Diediker created a group page called the Wax Onion Collaborative, opened the page to the public so that anyone could join the group, and effectively rendered his studio a global forum in which to garner collaborative influences from around the world.
Well over a thousand participants accepted his invitation, and all were offered the opportunity to directly provide their insights and opinions on his encaustic artwork during its creation. The result: a striking series of limited edition encaustic plates that have been collected in this book, along with a collection of Diediker’s larger body of artwork, including his Dollar Bill series and his evocative oil paintings.
Both the artist and the writer will be present to sign books and answer questions.
