Overview

This book presents a chronicle of the artist's groundbreaking initiative to harness the power of social media in the creation of his art. Using Facebook as his primary means of communication, Diediker, a prominent Utah artist, created a group page called the Wax Onion Collaborative, opened the page to the public, and effectively rendered his studio a global forum in which to garner collaborative influences from around the world. Well over a thousand participants accepted his invitation, and all were offered the opportunity to directly provide their insights and opinions on his encaustic artwork during its creation. The result—a comprehensive yearlong collaborative effort with richly diverse global influences that resulted in a striking series of limited edition encaustic plates unrivaled by any artwork seen in creation today. The book also presents a collection of Diediker's visually arresting larger body of artwork, including his Dollar Bill series and his evocative, unforgettable oil paintings.
