Toxicomano

A graphic designer and publicist by profession, Toxicómano Callejero (whose name translates as Street Junkie) hit the streets at the head of a group of urban artists with noble intentions who post messages on walls to combat what he calls “double and single standards” and ignorance. He is a genuine street artist; for him, the urban landscape is always his primary canvas.

Although his creations can be found on streets in Colombia’s main cities, Toxicómano’s work has occasionally found its way onto the walls of public buildings like the National Library of Colombia. As a result, his message has spread beyond the streets and the art world to gain recognition...

DFace

What now seems like a lifetime but is merely a decade ago I sat slumped at my desk, head on arm pushing a pencil round a piece of paper dreaming up ways to kill time and break the chains holding me to my desk, Monday to Friday each day became the same and I was eating my brain. Then one day whilst dreaming up further ideas in the series of ‘Ways to kill time’ the pencil lines on the pad started to become characters, strange and dysfunctional they formed my dysfunctional world which had no rule. Slowly I figured the pencil could be replaced with a marker pen (the Pentel N50 to...

Monstfur

MONSTFUR is an indigenous organism of artland, subsisting on the byproducts of modern life and the cultural carrion of generations past.

It expresses itself on the rusted steel sheets and redundant signage of its natural habitat equally as lucidly as on the rarefied canvas of the studio or gallery. This versatility has resulted in the colonisation of a variety of disparate locations: neither contemporary exhibiton spaces nor abandoned factories are safe...
