Some new paintings by my supremely talented friend, Mexican artist Smithe. One of my absolute favourite artists. More images below.
Mexican artist Smithe painted one of my favourite murals at Pow! Wow! Hawaii this year; it was a collaboration with German artist Case, and you can see it here. When I first posted his work back in 2012 I didn’t realise that in addition to being an insane painter and illustrator he’s also a musician! His band, .Stendal will be playing SXSW this month!
Seeing his work nice and big in Hawaii took it to a whole other level for me. I love his line work and the way he colours his pieces. Take a look at some more images below.
Stencil artist Peat Wollaeger sent out wooden luchador masks as blank canvases to artists around the world. The artists painted on them, sent them back, and Peat stenciled in the details of the face.
Back when I posted about the work of Meggs, I didn’t realise his mask image was from this project.
