The artistic duo just brought two new pop culture inspired billboards last week to this small town in Catalonia to entertain you with their hybrid brand of graffiti, video games, and sports references. Like many today they’re using the free association split-attention style of memes and the Internet that is now our lingua franca – or should we say
At the intersection of graffiti, the Internet, and cute things, Imon Boy has developed a fun-centric database of pop-cultre references merged and interplayed in scenarios from many a ‘00s teen memories surfing YouTube and catching tags – and showing his work in a gallery setting in Munich, Hamburg, Phillipines, Miami, Sydney, and New York. He says this game is typical of writers and cops – but it looks a lot more fun from this perspective.
A native of Badalona (Barcelona), Dagoe is similarly well travelled geographically as well, taking his illustration, design, and animation powers to France, Tunisia, Italy, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Here he namedrops Cope and references Tupac and Drake – with the sensitive Canadian rapper wearing a FC Barcelona team shirt and crying into a phone – that’s a mashup, bro.
Shout out to the 12+1 and the Contorno Urbano Foundation for hosting this duo.
