“Chwast contributed his distinct brand of absurdist wit to twentieth-century applied art and design. And although his methods were notably rooted in vintage-stylish decorative traditions … his work never slavishly copied the past. Instead, he synthesized, reinvented, and often parodied it.”
— Steven Heller, 2009
