Eddee Helms
The Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission presents the Eddee Helms Photoshop Collage Exhibit for the month of August at the Mountlake Terrace Library, 23300 58th Avenue West.

Eddee Helms is a photoshop collage artist who lives in Mountlake Terrace, Washington.

As a child, Helms grew up with the love of toys, Saturday morning cartoons, Captain Crunch Cereal and B horror films. Helms says his artwork is a combination of all these items tossed in a blender and spread out over the canvas creating a collision of organized chaos. Helms’ work is full of energy and surprises found in every nook and cranny of the image.

“The unique images I create are inspired by my love for retro toys, vintage imagery, and historical references, said Helms. “You’ll typically find me searching for hours identifying just the right image that can be broken down into many parts and then “frankensteined” together. These combinations begin to create a world only known in the deepest regions of my brain.”

Helms has worked in the toy and board game industry for over 15 years and recently  acts as the Creative Director for PowerA, a video game accessory company. His love for his family and art drives his passion, waking up every morning ready to imagine, discover, create and play.

The Mountlake Terrace Arts Advisory Commission oversees the library exhibits as part of its mission to promote cultural events in the community.

The show runs through August 31 at the Mountlake Terrace Library, Mondays through Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sundays 1 to 5 p.m.
