Taylor "Effin" Cleveland (not his real middle name, obviously, but he's badass enough to call himself whatever he wants) is a New Media artist based in Dallas. His body of work is so expansive that he has worked with almost everyone in town, from doing video projections with local performers, including Edward Ruiz, to dj-ing and vj-ing for fashion shows at WAAS Gallery, to having his portraits of local artists commissioned by THRWD magazine, to interning with Central Track, and to having one of his murals commissioned by Urban Outfitters at Northpark Mall in 2013.
Cleveland's aesthetic is on point with the trends occurring commercially in the art world. His work with body mapping and large-scale projection pieces that integrate sound compositions and performance utilize new media technologies in an inventive way that elevates any event he is involved in.More »
