Who’s the Paper Monster?
Who’s the Little Boy?
And who are all these ferocious kittens that Paper Monster features on the street and in the studio and gallery, with their piercing sharp stares and barbed wire bangs? The young NYC street artist isn’t sharing too much about the inner psyche of the creator, but our armchair analyst will only charge you 50 cents to connect the Freudian dots, and it’s worth every penny.
According to the press release for the show opening tonight, “each piece is a beautiful combination of layered imagery, textures and colors conveying themes of love, anger, fear, passion and mystery.” Truth is, Paper Monster has been banging out successively more intricate and polished stencils of these comely ladies, with their alter-ego wild sides, in the quietly consistent manner of a panther. Once you get past their jet-black razor wire exterior, you find a lawless riot of fluorescent color and shapes, decorative and comic, leaping and pouncing about inside.
Enjoy these pics of Paper Monster and his new show, six months in the making. If you are in Philadelphia tonight, stop by and give him a shout out from BSA.
