Swain usually works with acrylic paint.

Swain is a past recipient of a fellowship from the Guggenheim Foundation.

Swain’s style of art is very modern in both its design and bright acrylic paint. His work reminds me of street artist invader, as both artists work are similar to the first pixel images seen on computers.
