Toxicómano

A graphic designer and publicist by profession, Toxicómano Callejero (whose name roughly translates as Street Junkie) rose to prominence as the leader of a group of Colombian urban artists who use their art as a means to combat what he calls “double and single standards.” He is a street artist in the purest sense of the expression: the urban landscape will always be his primary canvas.

Although his creations can mainly be found on the streets of Colombia’s biggest 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...

D*Face

D*Face: “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...

MONSTFUR’s versatility means that their work can not only be found in the street but also at prestigious fairs like Stroke Art Fair in Munich, where their work has been exhibited alongside high profile artists such as Banksy and Mr.Brainwash. MONSTFUR’s works have also...
