Purchase Enjoy - Standard Edition Limited Edition Archival Pigment Print on 310gsm Museum Natural Fine Art Paper by Denial graffiti street artist modern pop art.
"Recently this piece was not allowed into a show I had wanted it to be in. In Dubai, they have strict rules on obscenity and vulgarity. I had been wanting to paint this piece for a long time and was looking for just the right image to use as a base in it. I finally found it amongst the bowels of the internet. This painting is a visualization of an amazing Bill Hicks joke from his stand-up routine. In his stand up Bill goes into great detail about the evils of advertising when left unchallenged and unchecked. He imagines and describes an ad in the not-so-distant future that one day may exist. This painting is of that ad. Bill Hicks was a fucking genius and I only hope I did his work the justice it deserves. He was so inspirational in forming my current mindset, a true artist and rebel. I take inspiration from different artists in different ways. I like to visualize things like songs or speech or comedy and play with the different elements I come up with. I have a very playful mind." - Denial
Denial is a Canadian artist who experiments with aerosol and stencil art, while his main fields of interest are consumerism, politics and the human condition in today’s society. Since the culture of graffiti was gaining more and more popularity in the US and Europe, the taggers had to be increasingly original in order to stand out. The signatures became bigger, more stylized and more colorful.
