Blaine Fontana currently lives and works in Portland, Oregon. Imbuing his vision with the divine symbolism of religious myths, worldly folklore and current social dynamics, his works contain a kind of shamanic exploration of meaning that recognizes the totemic quality and power of the image. Also a long time Arbor Collective artist, Fontana discusses his use of sustainable materials in his work. This video is the first in a series of artist profile pieces to be released throughout 2012.
