Brooklyn's vibrant arts scene is home to numerous talents, one of the most noteworthy being Joshua Maupin of Lilkool Studios. From the spray-paint mists of graffiti, Maupin's artistic journey has led him to the more traditional medium of painting. His unique style captures the raw energy of street art while echoing the finesse of vintage cartoon illustrations. This harmonious blend of street grit and classic cartoon vibrancy is a testament to Maupin's love for the 90s – an era marked by the rise of skate culture and a resurgent love for pop art. This dynamic fusion is epitomized in his "Untitled UltraGiclée Print," a limited edition piece presented on SIHL Ivory White Matt Paper. Produced as part of a celebratory series for the 30th Anniversary Collection of Bape, this artwork, limited to 300 prints, offers enthusiasts a tangible connection to Maupin's diverse influences. Each piece, signed and numbered, measures 22x22 inches, ensuring that it makes a statement wherever it's displayed. Furthermore, the inclusion of a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) not only validates the originality of the piece but serves as a testament to the artist's commitment to excellence and authenticity. Through this piece, Maupin showcases his deep-rooted appreciation for the bustling energy of New York streets, the whimsicality of traditional cartoons, and the raw edginess of the 70s underground comic scene. As the world of pop, street, and graffiti art continually evolves, artists like Maupin, with their unique perspectives and mastery over their craft, ensure that the legacies of these art forms remain both honored and invigorated.
In Brooklyn, the talented Joshua Maupin is the mastermind behind Lilkool Studios. Initially a graffiti artist, he has evolved into a painter, all while retaining his admiration for the bold strokes of vintage cartoonists. Lilkool Studios embodies the 90s zeitgeist and its corresponding skate culture, giving reverence to the greats of pop art with its vibrant compositions. Yet, Lilkool draws from many sources for inspiration - the bustling streets of New York City, traditional cartoon tropes, and the obscure underground comic scene of the 70s.
