The Creative Destruction is a contemporary art collaborative founded in 2016 by Timothy Archambault and CYJO to support and promote art that is realized through an existential and experiential process of development. Its theoretical framework views tension and anxiety as one of many influential components of growth. The Creative Destruction incessantly reinterprets manmade constructs (cultural, economic, political, social, etc.), destroying the old and creating the new.
