Artist's Statement

Owen Spangler is an up and coming artist, with a leniency to modern art. Spangler is twenty five years old and has graduated from the Pratt Institute in 2014. He currently resides in his home town of White Plains, NY. He works as a part time 3D model designer, and collects plastic waste to fuel his creative art projects that capture the very essence of modern art. Spangler is known for his good taste of music, and how he blends that into his art. His piece, "Crippling Depression" was inspired by the obscure rap song, "Kill Yourself" by Pink Guy. Whenever someone questions his musical tastes, he responds with his signature motto, "You insult my taste of music, boy?" Spangler is a controversial artist, because his live performance piece titled, "Arushi Anime," triggered what are called "weeaboos" worldwide for not having any art in the hentai style. Others say that "Arushi Anime" is a celebration of Arushi Murali and his talents, such as
