Artist Reddieo (Daniel Travers) Unites Vintage Canvases with Modern Art

Multi-genre artist, Redideo (Daniel Travers), unveils a new online art shop where he plans to sell professionally framed artwork produced on 12” vinyl records. This modern fine art style combined with a unique, upcycled, vintage canvas is a fresh take on current trends in the creative community.

Growing up, finding focus and purpose was often a struggle for him but art and music were two constants in his life that could always be counted on. A natural born artist, attracted to urban art and off-the-radar music, Redideo eventually earned a BFA in New Media from the Kansas City Art Institute and works in both the commercial sector and the field of fine art.

The interesting choice to paint on vinyl was born out of necessity. When starting out, Redideo didn’t have the cash for unlimited canvases to experiment on but he did have a ton of old records lying around. It turned out that the round recycled canvas gave each piece a more interesting look and what started out as an experiment became part of his classic signature. He also found the idea of upcycling old records and giving them a new purpose so they didn’t end up in a landfill to be very purposeful and motivating.

Starting with fluid painting but also branching out to other styles, Redideo covers 12” vinyl records with a mixture of acrylic paint and mixed medium to create his finished pieces. One of the most challenging and rewarding parts of this type of painting is learning how to control the behavior of the paint using different techniques and paint recipes in order to create colorful abstract images that resemble things found in the natural world.

The finished piece is dried and then coated with clear epoxy resin for a glossy shine. The last step is to frame the artwork and what would make a better framing style than to mimic that of a platinum record you might find hanging in a music producer's office?

This North Park, San Diego, California artist hopes to reach a wider audience with his new online store and those interested in purchasing his record paintings can visit his website at Each piece is hand painted and wholly unique, making them the perfect gift for any art lover. Free shipping is available throughout the US.
