My work explores the relationship between consumerist fetishism and urban spaces. With influences as diverse as Banksy and Andy Warhol, new synergies are created from both opaque and transparent meanings.
Ever since I was a teenager I have been fascinated by the unrelenting divergence of the universe. What starts out as yearning soon becomes manipulated into a dialectic of futility, leaving only a sense of decadence and the possibility of a new synthesis.
As shifting derivatives become reconfigured through diligent and personal practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the edges of our era.
The Fake Banksy Punks is a collection of 10,000 unique 3D hyper-realistic Pop art photographic NFTs living on the Ethereum blockchain.
Today, mainstream and social media networks have become our primary sources of staying current in world events; these key platforms have chosen to manipulate and present misinformation as facts while concealing and covering up the truth. When the truth has been buried six feet underground, there would be no difference between a Real and a Fake one, so the only thing that remains is a dirty, dirty bloody lie. Fake Banksy Punks is a Graffiti/Pop-art combo collection representing our protest of mainstream and social media manipulation/disinformation and the negative impacts on humanity.
Join our revolution against this madness. When we become one, they won’t dare to ignore us anymore<3
