New to the June festival, Butler mesmerized the jury with his unusual story-like installations. He has been working as an artist since 2011, after six years as a public school art teacher.

According to his website, Butler’s “narrative pieces express a desire to tell a story while exploring themes of transformation and change. He uses representational and metaphorical elements together to create narratives that imply specific allegorical themes but are also open-ended and shift between reality and fantasy.”
