    Everyday you are missed dearly, your beautiful artwork left to inspire us in your absence, perpetuating our sense of atlephobia. Rest easy Adam x

  • Tito Piccolo

    Just done a research on what’s the cause of death. So he ran away from a hospital then went missing, then after some days he was found dead?

    I’m really intrigued with this case. Anyone know more details about this?

  • He has that something I can’t name, the same thing Andrew Hem has. Brilliant work.

    • Oh!! i just read the comments below, So sad to lose someone so young.

  • Kevin Kwong

    Love the figures/icons that continue between his work. They string them together in a way that feels personal. Also feeling a bit of Andrew Hem/James Jean. This is my favorite of his.

Listening to this Shlohmo remix of Shook Ones on repeat in memory of Prodigy. The track is from Shlohmo’s summer mix for Sneeze Mag, the whole thing is worth a listen.
