Through Rescue or Destroy, I seek to inspire the idea of renewal through regeneration creation threw destruction. I seek to be reptilian: “primitive and cold-blooded like the snake, [symbolizing] the instinctual side of the unconscious”* that seeks to rejuvenate its personality, replacing the severed limb with an entirely new one. We seek the creation of something distinctly new through the destruction of the old, for often times such objects have a way of stifling our minds and creative energies.

I take being an artist serious and I am going all in. I find my art to satisfy my visual needs it makes me feel like I want to feel I think it is worthy to Exist. Now I need you to take it serious is my art work worthy of existence.
This is my new Rescue or Destroy project. This is how it works do you think this work of art is worthy of existence? This Art Necktie will not be in existence 48 hrs from now if some one doesn't decide they want it if you want it and think it should continue to exist go to the link below and purchase it if you think it should be destroyed obliterated from existence then do nothing.
If you are an artist and you want it I will barter or if you want to take me out for dinner that will also Rescue it.
Well this is the beginning of my newest version of Rescue or Destroy is my art Worthy of Existence.

Chicago artist and innovator Allen Vandever finds his family to be the most inspiring and motivating factor in his art and life. Allen says, “No matter how hard and frustrating the art word is I always have my family to find peace and balance within.”
Walter Allen Vandever, Allen’s son entered his life while he was living in Hawaii. It was at that time he decide he needed to get serious about his art career. Up until that point, Allen was only concerned about being a better painter. Walter, has grown up being inspired by living in daddy’s studio and has become quite the artist himself. Allen's first art teach was his grandmother who was a painter. Every day after school Allen would go to her house and make art. His Father is a wood carver in Minnesota.
When he was living in LA, prior to his move to Hawaii, he had huge success selling his work to collectors in the real estate industry, even selling work to one of his teenage ideals Slash from Guns & Roses. That sparked a friendship with Slash’s wife and family.
Now Allen is more focused on building his place in the art world, as well as, building a community and creating a strong foundation for those things. If you are lucky you might find his wife Dawn, singing at one of his shows accompanied by his stepfather. Dawn has an amazing voice and is an artist in her own right.
