Stikki Peaches, Fashionable Storm Troopers, and Ruling the World

Montreal’s Stikki Peaches wonders what would it be like if art ruled the world and we were shocked to learn that it doesn’t. Although if the last few days of art fairs are to be relied upon for global governance, the world seems smothered with credit cards, luxury logos, and every possible reworked iteration and echo of Andy Warhol you can imagine.

Mr. Peaches mines the image pools of popular culture as well, returning often to hand-cut print outs of celebrities, superheroes, and royalty for quick-read icons that he then customizes with stickers, paint drips, mohawks, metal spikes, and hand rendered facial tattoos. These new wheat-pasted pieces popped up in Brooklyn and Manhattan last week in well traveled high-profile locations sure to capture many an eye with images that are easily recognized, newly re-freshed, and stikki.
