Digital Art by Lloyd Arbour
Central Library Art Gallery

Opening Reception:
Thursday, May 4 at 7pm
Central Library

A perfectionist and visionary — Arbour’s abstract works are a creative outlet for this well-diversified artist, illustrator, and graphic designer. His unique digital illustrations blend originality, aesthetic appeal, and thought-provoking imagery that stirs question. Concepts start as digital illustrations created through Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Mediums play off, challenge, or complement one another.

Arbour’s most recent work experiments with architecture, trains, maps, blueprints, photography, and collage. He creates unique urban designs that incorporate the new with the old to create imagery that is impactful. His recent work is a face lift to ordinary day to day elements of an urban city. His work allows the viewer to explore another perspective to the subdued or ordinary views of city life.
