Mirror80 recently featured the work of artist John Noestheden in a post on today’s renewed interest in 1980s art. From works on paper to public art commissions and public performance pieces, Noestheden has been creating renowned large-scale artwork since the 1970s, including a geometric 8′ x 20′ lobby mural for Houston, Texas’ Cineplex Odeon (featured in the above-mentioned post). Today we celebrate the artist’s new works, many of which represent the universe using materials including acrylic, ink and Swarovski diamond crystals!
