Bio: Artlord is a Los Angeles based Street/Contemporary artist who's work explores the relationship between current pop culture, recycled culture, and nonchalance.
Statement: Artlord makes paintings and street installations. By using popular themes of pop and recycled culture, Artlord seduces the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of daily events. Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the human drama in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in everyday life.
His paintings sometimes radiate a cold and latent violence, and other times create a sense of playfulness and joy. The natural visual seductiveness of bright colors, along with the conciseness of hand cut stencils and screens; further builds the works depths contextually as well as physically.
By accentuating aesthetics, Artlord touches various overlapping themes and styles. Several reoccurring subject matters can be recognized throughout his work; the relation between popular culture and media, repetition, provocation, and a deeper look into the process of expectations; particularly with recycled pop culture icons.
Artlord’s works often refers to pop and mass culture. Using text, vibrant colors, and a street art aesthetic; he creates a euphoric world where light-heartedness meets undermined rules.
