Via LATimes/Brand X
“There’s a fine line between what’s an eyesore and what’s really beautiful,” says PaperMonster. “There’s a line between writing on the street, with no purpose versus a very well thought-out message that people can connect with.”

“There’s a lot of work that goes into each stencil and each painting,” says PaperMonster, who notes that many compositions require more than a dozen different stencils and aerosol colors. “It deserves to have a proper space so people can observe it and spend time with it. In the street, the experience is very ephemeral.”

Coverage of “PaperMonster Ate That Little Boy” via SensesLost, Brooklyn Street Art, and Unurth

July 9, 2010

Below are some wonderful links to Senses Lost , Brooklyn Street Art, and Unurth which conducted some wonderful coverage of “PaperMonster Ate That Little Boy.” You can check out the exclusive SensesLost(HERE) x PaperMonster Interview covering everything leading up to the solo show. Check out more news and info on all of the sites below.

Via SensesLost:

What do you want people to take away from your show?

Overall I want people to take away two things. The first is this sense of chaos as to what to start with first; the collage; the portraits; the textures, and just dive deep into each piece. This is the perfect time to just spend hours exploring all of the pieces together and there are some real surprises in this show. The second thing I want people to take away is a sense of inspiration. At the end of the day that is what all artists are trying to do; to inspire ordinary people to express themselves in unique and artistic ways…..For More Visit (HERE)

Vincent Michael Gallery is proud to present ‘PaperMonster Ate That Little Boy.’ A solo exhibition featuring prolific stencil artist, PaperMonster. The exhibition is on display from July 2nd to July 31st. In honor of PaperMonster’s solo exhibition, Vincent Michael Gallery will be hosting an opening reception Friday, July 2nd from 6pm to 9pm.

To highlight PaperMonster’s personal and artistic growth over the past few years, it was only fitting his solo exhibition with Vincent Michael Gallery be titled ‘PaperMonster Ate That Little Boy.’ PaperMonster’s current oeuvre has taken his signature female images and infused each piece with greater depth, meaning and emotive expression. Each piece is a beautiful combination of layered imagery, textures and colors conveying themes of love, anger, fear, passion and mystery. Several portraits are layered images of women and powerful animals; speaking to the strength, ferocity and power that each women carries within. By continually developing his distinct use of collage, PaperMonster has taken his striking ability to explore facial expressions to new levels.

Preparing something MASSIVE/LARGE/HUGE!

Twenty-two contemporary artists were chosen to participate in Just Art 2010. The Exhibit is curated in four clusters of work, each representing one of four issues central to the New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU)’s work in 2010: Censorship, Privacy and Surveillance, Immigration Reform and Reproductive Rights. Each artist created artwork speaking to one of these four issues. While the show is eclectic in media and style to please almost any visitor, each cluster is cohesive; held together by a common medium or theme.

We would like to express our incredible gratitude to the artists. Each artist has slashed their prices to help raise funds for the NYCLU’s worthy work. For many of the more prolific artists in the group, Just Art 2010 offers unparalleled deals.

The lion’s share of the pieces in the Exhibit are listed below with images. You can browse the Auction by style/medium or minimum bid prices. To make a bid, please add a comment to the specific posting. We will contact you by e-mail to collect payment information in case you win the bid. If you MUST have a specific artwork, you may buy it by bidding its listed Market Value. This will pull the piece out of the Auction and make it yours on midnight of June 24, 2010.
