INTERVIEW:: PaperMonster @ Art Nouveau Magazine

July 28, 2009
I recently sat down with Art Nouveau Magazine (HERE) for an interview about my art, my blog, the “Give and Take” project, my influences and stencil art in general. It was a wonderful interview with very interesting questions such as what the role does the internet play in the lives of current artists, the importance of color in my work, and what is my ultimate goal as an artist?

PaperMonster Interview:

Info Via Art Nouveau Magazine:

ANM: When did you first know you were an artist?
PM: We are all artists. We create and destroy and can make something out of nothing. That is really the essence of the word artist. We create because we not only want to express ourselves, but we want to share what we have with the world….
ANM: You blog extensively, how important is blogging to building a fan base?
PM: My blog in all honesty is my life. It helps me share my work, share what I love, and get feedback on what I am doing. I think that not just blogs but the internet as a whole has really opened up the doors for a lot of opportunity to where if you are interested in art or a specific show you can see it all before an event opens to the public . My blog and any other social networking site serve one major role. I control myself…… Fore More Visit (HERE)

NYC: PaperMonster Give and Take Project

July 14, 2009
I am very excited to show some new images from my “Give and Take” Project. The city is full of treasures, texture and communication. The new pieces for the project attempt to capture the decay of colors and textures of the street and give them new life. It is great to explore new locations around the city and visit some classic spots that are sure to never disappoint, such as the Candle Building on Wooster Street. I think the project is going in the right direction and I can’t wait to see what direction it takes me in. Enjoy the images below and feel free to send me your thoughts at

Not sure of the name of the street artist who placed the bowl of cherries but together, along with the glare from the trees this picture turned out great.

Os Gemeos Mural: NYC Bowery and Houston

July 13, 2009
On Sunday, I took a moment to head over to the Os Gemeos Mural on Bowery and Houston. This project just one word: IMPRESSIVE. If you are in the New York City Area, you have to take a look at this mural. Touch it, view it up close or from far away. However you like. Os Gemeos are bringing together so many techniques and colors that the mural is sure to impress many people. Although the entire mural is not fully completed, you can tell from the pictures below that this is truly a masterpiece being put together. One thing I noticed during my visit was: THE SUN. Os Gemeos has been working under incredibly harsh sunlight and heat. From anyone who paints outdoors these conditions can really give your body a beating. The level of talent really shines and there is no question that the final product will be breath taking.

Catch detailed images of part of the mural below::

Notice the beautiful use of stencils in everything from scales to clothing. Great Job.

The patterns and stencils caught my eye right away.

Liz Claiborne New York Update!!

July 1, 2009
This morning came to a fantastic start as I recieved a great email from Alexia of Liz Claiborne New York (HERE) Marketing with an original image from the national ad campaign featuring not only beautiful fashion but designer Issac Mizrahi. In the email Alexia wrote:
“To answer your question, there was a discussion as to whether or not the graffiti should be photoshopped out. Ultimately the decision was made to keep it in. The whole goal for our national ad campaign was to keep the environment as real as possible. Being that graffiti is a natural element in the urban atmosphere, we just went with what the scene had to offer.”
She is absolutely correct!! Urban art and graffiti are truly natural elements of our environment and they exemplify communication between people and their environment as well as the urge and desire to create. Fantastic job!!
