S.R. Wild’s collages are playful scenes assembled from the vintage print materials he unearths from junk shops, thrift stores, and the trash. He first started making paper assemblages in the early ’90s when he found a stack of old magazines in his parents’ basement and borrowed his mom’s X-ACTO knife. 25 years later, he still hasn’t returned her X-ACTO knife. Although he primarily works in collage, he also does printmaking, lettering, calligraphy, photography, and graphic design.
S.R. Wild lives in Burlington, Vermont, with his comedy writer girlfriend, two of the greatest long-haired cats in the world, and a judgmental tortoise. In his free time he can be found riding or fixing one of his many motorcycles and mopeds. He currently works at Magic Hat pushing pixels (to hide his secret identity as a mad scientist (https://www.magichat.net/blackmagic/).

Join us at The Artifactory for artist S.R. Wild's opening reception in the Art Space gallery. Fresh beer, food, music and Wild's collages will be on display from 5-7pm.
The Magic Hat ArtSpace was introduced in 2012 on the Artifactory tour ramp and showcases local artists and their work. Selected artists will typically be featured for two months. When a new artist is chosen, we will hold a reception on the first Friday of that month to coincide with Art Map Burlington’s First Friday Art Walk. All of the artwork displayed in this space can be purchased directly from the artists.
If you are interested in showing your work at the ArtSpace email Katie.DeWitt@magichat.net
