Fine Artist Sol Hill Creates: The Best Art!

Sol Hill grew up in New Mexico, in a family of artists. He was surrounded by the works not only of his parents, but also of the artists that they exhibited in their contemporary art gallery in Santa Fe. From an early age, Sol was fascinated by the shapes that he could see, but could not yet understand nor appreciate. His varied travel experiences all over the country and throughout Europe during his formative years further influenced his creative mind. He has referred to his works as Energy Paintings because it is a hybrid process, simultaneously photography and painting, and yet is neither. His works are also considered Metagraphs because they are records of energies inclusive of and beyond those of visible light. Studying political science in college helped expand his interests, which Sol would eventually incorporate into his current Trump-centric series.

His new work, The Best Art! is an activist political art project aimed at resisting what Sol describes as “the orange agenda.” The text is fake gold lettering in a field of ground up Cheetos cheese puffs mixed with acrylic glazing. The text included in the smaller works are direct Trump quotes. Sol tells JustLuxe more about his artistic process and his latest works which poke fun at current politics.
