ABOUT MY ART

 

 Doug Powell's introduction to recycling started as a young teenager growing up in Central New Jersey when he would go door to door throughout the neighborhood collecting used newspapers and glass containers that would ultimately end up at the Saturday morning paper drive with the local Boy Scouts.
Many years later, Doug’s inner creativity from his youth came calling, and after serving 10 years in the US Navy, this Gulf War Veteran’s art adventure has become a full time endeavor.
His current medium is cast-off computer keys from clunky old keyboards that come from a variety of origins. Each piece has a unique tangible history that bears the weathered landscape of thousands of uses. “I want the viewer to ponder the infinite profound combination of thoughts, ideas and inspirations that have surely passed through this Intellectual porthole and all made possible with just the common computer key.” Says Doug. Since pioneering the art form in 2010, Doug has transacted over 25 computer keyboard mosaics to Ripley's "Believe It Or Not!" permanently installed in over a dozen of their Museums world wide.
In 2017 and 2018, Powell exhibited in Art Basel Miami and was featured in the Spectrum Miami Art Show, winning Director’s Award both years as well as Spectrum Selects and Spotlight Awards. His artwork is currently featured in the Award winning Guarisco Gallery, Washington, DC.
Powell's list of commissions is quickly growing and include Marriott Resorts, Santa Clara, California, Mary Kay Headquarters, Dallas, Texas, Intel Corporation, University of Miami and University of Denver as well as many private collectors including patrons from the Dominican Republic, Mali West Africa, Hollywood California, Boston, Mass. and New York City.
