Though going to visit amazing street art and museum galleries would be ideal, we don’t always have the money to buy a plane ticket just for art. We’re college students! The next best thing, in my opinion, is buying art remotely and brightening up your social media feeds with some hip street art from some of the most talented street artists out there. Check them out!
From his website: “Judith Supine is an artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. Supine could not speak until a month after his seventeenth birthday. He could not physically articulate words, he could only squeak and grunt. Supine often drew pictures to communicate with his family. His mom saved all of his pictures, just one of many reasons why his mom is great.
Judith Supine uses materials that are free or at least real cheap. He uses an exacto-knife, glue sticks, cheap ugly paints and real sleazy magazines that make him sexually uncomfortable. Judith Supine gets his magazines out of people’s trash, from the public library, from the dentist’s offices, from his little sister’s magazine collection, and from bankrupt porn shops.”
From the Street Museum of Art’s website: “The twin brothers that make up this street art collaboration, Skewville, began leaving behind their sneaker cutouts around 1999. Silhouettes of the shoes seen dangling from the wires reference the urban upbringing from which the two grew up in New York City. While some may associate these markers with gang or drug territory, for others, they are a nostalgic reminder of mischievous adolescent memories.”
From his website: “Buff Monster is a New York City street artist who uses bright colors, bold lines and funny characters to make the world a better place. He names heavy metal music, ice cream, pop art, Japanese culture and graffiti as major influences. For over 15 years, he’s worked with leading curators to paint murals all over the world and is included in Banksy’s Oscar-nominated documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop. His meticulously executed paintings have been shown in galleries around the world; the Bristol City Museum has a painting in their permanent collection. He’s worked with some of the most recognizable brands, such as Disney, Converse, Hello Kitty, Samsung, Nike and Coca-Cola. Now under the brand name Stay Melty, he continues to release a variety of limited-edition collectibles, including vinyl and resin toys, prints, shirts, stickers and trading cards. He’s extremely active on social media and has cultivated an impressive following.”
