We like to think of ourselves as art aficionados here at Demur. When we came across MBG whilst scrolling through the gram, we had to stop and explore a bit more. We immediately reached out to MBG to a get a better picture.
The message of his art is… to bring awareness to the culture that we are in, to be free, to be original. It seems a lot of people are using stencil artwork with the same usual suspects and subjects… Marilyn Monroe, Andy Warhol, Jean Michel Basquiat, Dahli, Frieda, Mickey Mouse, etc. you get my drift. Chanel, Louis Vuitton, and Versace have been staples in the pop art genre… therefore I chose Givenchy.
It seems people are receptive to his message considering all the art awards he has received…I believe people are taking notice. Sometimes I think about the music and film industry. To grab an audience’s attention, you need a dope beat, something to capture your audience in that moment and then deliver the message. The Matrix, one of my favourite movies, executed this brilliantly! The Matrix was filled with great energy and entertainment, all while delivering potent material to digest. I go about my craft the same way. I find colour scheme subjects, grab the attention, lure the audience in before the content takes hold.
