Nate Christenson ’18 recently spoke with Threadless about his new illustration series Spirited Wonderland, a mashup of scenes from Sprited Away and Alice in Wonderland. The interview goes into detail about fairytales and folklore, how living in very different places (i.e., China, Minnesota, and Florence) has influenced his art, and the collection of work for sale in his artist shop.
On the topic of art, Christenson tells Threadless, “it should offer a fresh perspective in some way, whether it plays with expectations or adds a twist to the familiar. I would definitely recommend changing environments and surrounding yourself with people that think differently than you do. Sometimes you learn more about where you came from than where you end up.”
