Ann Scango is an American artist who’s been recognized for her 3D art curation. Ann founded the Scango Collection in 2016, and she heads the firm up to date. Based in Austin, Ann Scango has a passion for using natural materials to create her art. For instance, she uses molding and collage techniques, which are fused together to find industrial materials that she can use to create her art. In addition to that, Ann Scango also uses polyurethane foam, which she tops with other resources that she finds across Austin like twigs and mulch from Zilker Park and her garden respectively. Ann has been an environmental enthusiast for a long time. She’s tried to show other people the importance of preserving the environment through her sculptures that she makes from natural materials.
Ann Scango’s artwork has been used to show the link between people and the environment and the importance of that link. She questions the culture of consumption unconsciously but reflects optimism too. Ann Scango has had a passion for art and the environment since she was young though she didn’t pursue it as a profession since she was formerly a stay at home mom.
In recent years, the culture of people has changed and so has the art world. In an article that Ann Scango wrote in June, she explains that social media has had a significant role in the alteration of people’s way of life and their beliefs and preferences too. Jia Jia Fei is one of the people who has brought a change in the art world. She is responsible for delivering art to the people through social media. People no longer appreciate art as they used to in the past since the art that is kept on the internet is easily accessible as compared to the art that’s preserved in museums. Art that’s shared on social media is considered a success if a lot of people like it as opposed to the experience surrounding the viewing of the art from a museum.
