    Denial- Daniel Bombardier Mannequin 3 Art Sculpture by Denial- Daniel Bombardier

    Mannequin 3 Original Mixed Media Sculpture Mannequin Artwork by graffiti street artist modern pop artist Denial. 2013 Signed Original Sculpture Covered with Hundreds of Custom Brand Stickers Artwork Size 51x26. Canadian artist Denial and Australian-born Ben Frost have joined forces in a bold exhibition of new work that explores the boundaries of appropriation in confronting re-imaginings of our current dystopian society. In the dynamic intersection of street pop art and graffiti artwork, the 'Mannequin 3' original mixed media sculpture by the artist known as Denial stands as a compelling commentary on consumer culture and the saturation of branding in modern life. This 2013 signed original sculpture is a profound exploration of identity and materialism, meticulously covered with hundreds of custom brand stickers, each a testament to the pervasive reach of commercial influence. Denial, a Canadian artist, has built a reputation for his thought-provoking works that often incorporate elements of pop art with a twist of subversion, challenging viewers to reconsider their surroundings and the messages they are bombarded with daily. This particular piece, with its life-sized mannequin form, becomes a canvas that reflects our society's obsession with brands and the commodification of human identity. The mannequin is transformed into a mosaic of commercial logos, each sticker meticulously placed to create a tapestry that is both familiar and unsettling. This sculpture symbolizes the artist's style, which often merges humor with critique and blurs the lines between high and low culture. By appropriating the very symbols of the consumerist society, Denial forces a dialogue on the value we place on brand identities and their invasive presence in our lives. The artwork's size, 51x26, gives it a presence that cannot be ignored, dominating the space and demanding contemplation. Through 'Mannequin 3', Denial, in collaboration with Ben Frost, an Australian-born artist known for his provocative work, invites viewers to navigate the complexities of appropriation and the role of branding in our understanding of the world. The sculpture is not just an object of art; it is a statement on the state of our society—a society in which the line between person and product is increasingly blurred.

  • Sale -30% Skittles Candy Original 2021 Food Art Object by Supreme

    Supreme Skittles Candy Original 2021 Food Art Object by Supreme

    Supreme Skittles Candy- Original 2021 Limited Edition Real Candy Art Toy Collectible Artwork. 2021 Unopened Pack of Skittles candies. It was made exclusively for Supreme. Do not eat, considered a Fashion Designer Art Collectible. Confectionery and Street Pop Art: The Supreme Skittles Candy Original 2021 Limited Edition In collectible artwork, the fusion of popular culture and designer influence frequently births unique creations that resonate with a broad audience. The Supreme Skittles Candy, a 2021 limited edition release, epitomizes this trend, standing at the crossroads of confectionery delights and street pop art. This collectible transcends its initial purpose as a candy to become a symbol of modern pop art, tapping into the vibrant essence of graffiti artwork. From Sweet Treats to Collectible Art The concept of candy as collectible art is not traditionally acknowledged in the conservative art scene. However, the collaboration between Supreme, a titan in streetwear fashion, and Skittles, a household candy brand, has transformed a simple pack of candies into an art piece. This special edition of Skittles was produced exclusively for Supreme, encapsulating the essence of street pop art and graffiti artwork. The packaging bears the unmistakable Supreme logo, a mark of high-end street fashion. At the same time, the Skittles inside are imprinted with the same iconic logo, blurring the lines between a snack and a coveted art piece. A Cultural Artifact of Our Times The Supreme Skittles Candy transcends its material composition to serve as a cultural artifact. It is a manifestation of the era's zeitgeist, where brand collaborations are a marketing strategy and a form of artistic expression. The item reflects the influence of street pop art on mainstream culture, where the irreverent and vibrant visuals of graffiti artwork find a place in everyday objects. This collectible is not meant for consumption despite its edible origins; instead, it's preserved as a memento of the time when streetwear and pop art converged in an unprecedented manner. The significance of this collectible piece extends to the conversation around the value and permanence of art. In an era where ephemeral art forms like street art are becoming more widely recognized and valued, the Supreme Skittles Candy stands as an emblem of transitory art made permanent. This edition is not just about the taste or the allure of a limited run; it's about the statement it makes and the context it occupies within street pop art and graffiti artwork. It is a testament to how contemporary art is evolving and how everyday items are repurposed as commentary on and artifacts of the current cultural and artistic landscape. The Supreme Skittles Candy Original 2021 Limited Edition serves as a vibrant example of how art can be playful yet profound, commercial yet collectible, and temporary yet timeless. Its existence challenges traditional notions of art and collectibility, cementing its place as a unique piece of street pop and graffiti artwork that captures the essence of its time.

  • What Drones? HPM Spray Paint Wood Stencil by Denial- Daniel Bombardier

    Denial- Daniel Bombardier What Drones? HPM Spray Paint Wood Stencil by Denial- Daniel Bombardier

    What Drones? Limited Edition Hand-Embellished Spray Paint, Acrylic, Stencil, Mixed Media On Cradled Wood Panel by Denial Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. 2015 Signed & Numbered Limited Edition of HPM Stencil 5 Artwork Size 48x30 Canadian artist Denial and Australian-born Ben Frost have joined forces in a bold exhibition of new work that explores the boundaries of appropriation, in confronting re-imaginings of our current dystopian society. Self-­confessed ‘visual thieves’, both artists have had a long history of stealing and subverting the cultural icons that the advertising and consumerist world has thrust upon us, to create new and pertinent interpretations that are as confronting as they are humorous. Denial and Frost formed an instant friendship since their meeting in Canada in 2011 and have been creating engaging street and gallery work ever since. "Company of Thieves" sees their collaboration push further, with large and small-scale works that reference Pop Art, Graffiti, and the corporate world they rebel against. Denial’s art is strongly political and social since the artist takes specific positions against issues, such as capitalism, consumer culture, and advertisements. More importantly, the artist is aware of his choices and motivations: “I like to think of myself as activist pop art. How I relate with cartoons and graphics is a lot easier than I do with photo-realistic stuff" Another aspect of Denial's work is humor. His work is satirical, which, by definition, means that it uses humor as a confronting mechanism.

This collectible, crafted with a design inspired by the iconic Marlboro cigarette pack, encapsulates a blend of provocative street style and consumerist critique, arriving new in a meticulously designed box that underscores the artist's attention to detail and commitment to the concept. Vandul, a name that resonates within the street pop art and graffiti artwork community, utilizes the canvas of footwear to explore themes of commercialism, addiction, and the allure of branding. These rare art object sneakers comment on the pervasive nature of advertising and how brand imagery infiltrates and influences public consciousness. The shoes, never worn and preserved in their original packaging, are as much a statement piece as a fashion item, inviting reflection on the intersections between identity, consumer culture, and artistic expression. Vandul's work challenges the wearer and observer to consider the implications of branding, even as it appropriates and recontextualizes a familiar logo into something new and artistically significant. In essence, Vandul's Cowboy Killers sneakers are a testament to the power of street pop art to make a statement, transform the ordinary into the extraordinary, and provoke thought through the medium of everyday objects. These sneakers are not just a piece of clothing but a conversation starter, a piece of wearable art that carries the weight of cultural critique and the legacy of street art innovation.

    Breatharian Artwork Giclee Limited Edition Fine Art Print on 100% Cotton Hahnemühle Museum Etching Paper by Pop Culture Graffiti Artist Victo Ngai. Callan Wink's short story "Breatharian" artwork was in the New Yorker magazine.

    Denial- Daniel Bombardier Enjoy Original Stencil Spray Paint Painting by Denial- Daniel Bombardier

    Enjoy Mixed Media On Cradled Wood Panel Original Painting by Denial Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. Ready To hang. "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 has evolved as one the most prominent figures of contemporary pop artists, who nonetheless, continue to stay relevant and is interested in generating thought-provoking commentary. He has a long history of exploring the boundaries of appropriation, which he uses as a means of subverting the value of cultural products, imprinted in the collective memory of the Western civilization. His work, in other words, is inviting the viewer to re-imagine our dystopian society as a way of confronting it, with humor and irony as the biggest tools of the artist.

    Graffiti for Sale One of a Kind 1 HPM Painted Silkscreen by Hijack Hand-Pulled 15-Color Screen Print on Fine Art Paper Limited Edition Street Art Artwork. 2022 Signed #1 of One of a Kind Edition of 5 HPM Custom Framed Hand Painted Artwork Size 30x22 Hijack's "Graffiti for Sale" is a distinctive artwork that boldly merges the worlds of commercialism with the unbridled spirit of street art. Created in 2022, this one-of-a-kind hand-pulled 15-color screen print exemplifies the artist's ability to juxtapose societal commentary with vibrant urban aesthetics. Using fine art paper as its canvas, the piece measures an impressive 30x22 inches, large enough to capture the intricate detailing and bold strokes that are trademarks of Hijack's style. As a testament to its exclusivity, "Graffiti for Sale" is signed as #1 in a very limited edition series, an HPM or Hand-Painted Multiple, where only five such pieces exist. Unlike traditional prints where each piece is a replica of the original, an HPM means that while the print may be the same, each artwork has unique hand-painted elements, making each one distinct. This specific artwork, being custom framed, adds an additional layer of sophistication, preserving its vibrancy and ensuring longevity. Delving deeper into the artwork's narrative, one is immediately drawn to the central figure, a poised individual holding a sign that reads "Street Art for Sale." This statement acts as a satirical nod to the commodification of street art, a once underground movement now showcased in galleries and auction houses worldwide. Surrounding the central figure is a whirlwind of colors, shapes, and forms - a chaotic representation of the bustling world of graffiti. Hijack's piece is not just art; it's a conversation, a statement, and a reflection on the ever-evolving world of street and pop art.

    High Score Blotter Paper Limited Edition Archival Pigment Print Art on Perforated Blotter Paper by Denial pop culture LSD artwork. 2020 Signed Limited Edition of 50 Artwork Size 7.5x7.5 In 2000 he adopted the moniker ‘DENIAL’ as a means of poking fun at advertising, politics, and media messages that contemporary society is often ‘in denial about. Since then he has maintained an ongoing global street-campaign of over 500, 000 stickers, placards, and murals, using the alpha-numeric characters ‘D3N!@L’. Intended as a conceptual means of marketing absurdism, DENIAL also challenges traditional notions of graffiti and public art through his bold and often satirical visual subversions. In the world of Denial, memory is important, because it is the basis of his work, as it nostalgically encourages the audience to engage with it. As a result, his art is as familiar, as it is disturbing because it reveals the most unsettling parts of society, the ones we are in a “denial” of. No matter its controversial history, graffiti is less and less viewed as a form of vandalism.

PP Printers Proof Signed & Marked PP Limited Edition Artwork Size 18x18 Shell Archival Print by Cey Adams "The whole idea behind my Trusted Brands series was that I wanted to revisit many of the iconic logos of my youth to reconnect to familiar things. These pieces are mostly made of handmade fiber papers from India and Nepal. I wanted to do something rivaling my friends who used spray paint and connected with my graffiti roots, but I didn't want to do what everybody else did. I thought it would be interesting to challenge myself to use a medium I have never used before, and collage spoke to me." - Cey Adams. Cey Adams' "Shell" - A Convergence of Branding and Art Cey Adams, a foundational figure in graffiti and street pop art, presents a compelling piece in his "Shell PP Printers Proof Limited Edition." This work is part of Adams' "Trusted Brands" series, where he revisits the emblematic logos that marked his youth. The print, an 18x18 archival pigment on fine art paper, showcases his exploration into collage, setting him apart from his contemporaries who favored spray paint. This piece is a Printer's Proof, signed and marked by Adams, adding a layer of exclusivity and collectibility. Adams' choice to use handmade fiber papers from India and Nepal lends an organic texture that contrasts with the commercial sharpness of the Shell logo. His work is a nod to nostalgia and a dialogue between past and present, consumerism and craftsmanship. The "Shell" piece stands out as a testament to Adams' ability to innovate within his graffiti roots while pushing the boundaries of his artistic expression. In Adams' own words, his college journey was challenging to escape the graffiti norm. His "Trusted Brands" series, including the "Shell" print, reflects this personal and artistic quest to connect with familiar symbols uniquely, embodying the essence of modern pop art within the urban landscape.

As an extensive format work, measuring an impressive 42 x 42 inches, it makes an indelible mark on the viewer, both through its scale and its strikingly stark one-color presentation on varnished 100% cotton rag archival paper, complete with hand-deckled edges. Shepard Fairey is renowned for blending fine art with the raw, in-your-face quality of street art and graffiti, and "Know Your Rights" is a prime example of this synthesis. The piece is anchored by a central image featuring an open book titled "THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN," encapsulating a message of empowerment and the potential for change. This is framed by laurels and a lit torch, evoking classic motifs that signify victory, knowledge, and enlightenment. The bordering texts "OBEY PROPAGANDA" and "KNOW YOUR RIGHTS" play into Fairey's recurring themes of propaganda, control, and the dissemination of information, urging the viewer to question authority and the narratives they are presented with. Each print in this limited edition is signed and numbered by Fairey, signifying its authenticity and connection to the artist's hand. The decision to use a one-color palette speaks to the work's assertive simplicity and Fairey's skill in using contrast and texture to convey depth and resonance. It's a technique that mirrors his street art roots, where messages must be given quickly and memorably. The serigraph process, a labor-intensive method of screen printing, ensures that each impression is of the highest quality, with the varnishing on the cotton rag paper adding a durable, tactile finish that also enhances the visual impact. "Know Your Rights" stands as a powerful statement in Fairey's oeuvre, reflecting his social and political advocacy rendered through his distinct pop art lens. This artwork resonates with the immediacy of street art and carries the weight of historical art traditions, bridging contemporary concerns with timeless expressions of resistance and hope.

    Louis Vuitton Designer Drugs PP Printers Proof Skateboard Art Deck by Denial- Daniel Bombardier Limited Edition Archival Print on Wood Skateboard Deck by Street Artwork Graffiti Artist. PP Printers Proof 2018 Marked PP Limited Edition Signed COA Skateboard Artwork Size 8x31 Skateboard Art Deck With Famous Louis Vuitton Logo With Stylized Pill Elements. The Louis Vuitton Designer Drugs PP Printers Proof Skateboard Art Deck stands as an iconic piece that reflects the dynamic interplay between luxury branding and the audacious spirit of street art. This masterpiece, conceptualized and brought to life by Denial, the artistic pseudonym for Canadian visionary Daniel Bombardier, offers a deep dive into the contemporary societal landscape, making it a focal point of discussion in both the pop art and street art communities. This 2018 creation is distinguished not only by its artistic flair but also by its exclusivity, being a part of a limited edition set of just 50, bearing the 'PP Printers Proof' insignia. Such proofs are preliminary versions of a final artwork, hinting at the artist's journey to the final rendition and ensuring the highest quality of the final output. Each piece from this collection is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, signed by Denial, cementing its authenticity and value. With dimensions of 8x31, this skateboard deck serves as more than just a canvas—it's an emblem of the raw and unapologetic energy of street culture. The artwork predominantly features the globally recognized Louis Vuitton logo, but Denial's interpretation adds a twist. The iconic logo is intertwined with stylized pill elements, providing a critique on society's infatuation with luxury and the lengths some might go to achieve a state of transient opulence. The pill, a symbol of transient relief, perhaps suggests the ephemeral nature of materialistic luxury. An intersection of fashion, art, and social commentary, the Louis Vuitton Designer Drugs Skateboard Art Deck by Denial is not just a visual spectacle. It beckons viewers to question, reflect, and engage in a dialogue about the modern world's values and obsessions.

Advertising & Brands Graffiti Street Pop Artwork

 The Intersection of Advertising, Brands, and Street Art

Advertising through street graffiti art is a controversial practice that has been debated for many years. On the one hand, it is a creative way to promote products and services unconventionally. On the other hand, others see it as a violation of public spaces and a form of visual pollution. One of the main concerns with advertising in street graffiti art is that it can be seen as a form of corporate co-optation of a grassroots movement. Graffiti art has historically been associated with political dissent, social commentary, and artistic expression. Some argue that using this medium to promote commercial interests undermines the authenticity and integrity of the art form.
Furthermore, advertising through street graffiti art can be seen as a violation of public spaces. The relationship between advertising, brands, and street art has evolved dramatically, with each element borrowing from and influencing the others. Street Pop Art & Graffiti Artwork, once seen as a form of rebellion against mainstream culture and commercialization, has now, in many instances, become a tool for that very commercial world it once stood against. This intersection has given rise to a fascinating dialogue within the art community about street art's role in advertising and the commodification of brands. Street artists have long appropriated logos, slogans, and other corporate branding elements to critique consumer culture and the pervasiveness of advertising in public spaces. This appropriation often involves subverting brand imagery or using it in ironic ways to challenge the messages conveyed by corporations. This form of artistic expression serves to reclaim public spaces from the clutches of corporate advertising and spark conversations about consumerism's impact on society.

Brands Embracing Street Art Aesthetics

Conversely, brands have increasingly sought to harness the authenticity and 'cool' factor associated with street art. By commissioning street artists to create murals or to design products, brands aim to tap into the youth market and align themselves with the values associated with street culture. This collaboration has brought street art into the mainstream and has provided street artists with new platforms to showcase their work. However, it has also raised questions about the commercialization of an art form that was traditionally anti-establishment and has prompted discussions about the balance between artistic integrity and commercial success. The collaboration between street artists and brands can lead to a symbiotic relationship where artists gain exposure and financial support. In contrast, brands benefit from the association with the cutting-edge and socially conscious image of street art. However, it can also lead to accusations of selling out and diluting the subversive power that street art can wield.

Advertising as Inspiration for Street Art

In pop art, the influence of advertising and branding has always been evident, with artists like Andy Warhol turning the imagery of consumer goods into high art. Street artists have continued this tradition, using the techniques and aesthetics of advertising in their work. This can involve mimicking the slick production values of commercial billboards or adopting the language of advertising to convey an anti-consumerist or anti-corporate message. Advertising and branding provide a rich source of material for street artists to critique, and in doing so, they mirror contemporary society's values and priorities. By co-opting brands' imagery, street artists can comment on issues ranging from globalization to environmental degradation, making their work relevant and accessible to a broad audience. Graffiti art is often created without permission from property owners or city authorities and can be seen as vandalism. This raises questions about the ethics of using public spaces to promote commercial interests, mainly if done without consent. Despite these concerns, there are some arguments in favor of advertising through street graffiti art. For one, it can be seen as a creative way to reach a young and urban audience. Street art is often seen as edgy and calm, and by using this medium to promote products and services, companies can tap into this cultural currency.
Moreover, advertising through street graffiti art can be seen as a way to support and encourage emerging artists. Companies can commission artists to create graffiti art that incorporates their products or branding, providing a platform for these artists to showcase their talents and gain exposure.
In conclusion, advertising through street graffiti art is a controversial practice that raises questions about the ethics of using public spaces to promote commercial interests. While there are arguments in favor of this approach, there are also concerns about its impact on the authenticity of the art form and the use of public spaces. Ultimately, it is up to individual companies to decide whether this strategy aligns with their values and goals.

Cultural Implications of Branding in Street Art

The use of branding in street art also has more profound cultural implications. It reflects the increasingly blurred lines between high and low cultures, art and commerce, and public space and advertising billboards. In a world where consumers are constantly bombarded with advertising messages, street art incorporating branding can either contribute to the visual noise or cut through it with a powerful message. For street artists, the challenge is to use the imagery of advertising to enhance their message rather than undermine it. For brands, the challenge is to engage with street art in a way that is respectful and understanding of its history and ethos. As street art grows in popularity and visibility, the relationship between advertising, brands, and street art will undoubtedly continue to evolve, raising new questions and sparking fresh debates within the art world.
