Despite his subjects having journeyed from one end of the country to the other on major freeways, historic highways and back country roads, artist Aaron Foster has definitely taken the road less traveled. His artwork, fashioned out of vintage license plates, has earned him a loyal following and critical acclaim--his rendering of a United States map out of old license plates was featured on ABC's "Extreme Makeover, The Home Edition."
Where does Foster get inspiration? Believe it or not from his history studies at the University of California-Davis. He became fascinated with ever-changing old maps and globes, which represent the evolution of time. Similarly, the license plates used in the commission of his work represent changing times. Foster's timeless pieces, which fetch prices ranging $250-$3,000, can be found in galleries, boutiques and various stores throughout the country from New York to Austin, Texas to L.A.
