These are the stencils that I use for my graffiti work. They are extremely political and point out the hypocrisy of both the left-wing and right-wing people.
My work addresses lots of issues ranging from government-sponsored torture to the use of disaster funds for public control by corporations to foreclosures to the corruption in the art market. I like to provoke by delivering concise statements about humanity from cynical humor.
My new series include preliminary studies that blur the distinction between the scientific view of an event and the personal interpretation of history. Random images rendered in blobs of abstractions represent the attraction of the reader into the vortex of deconstruction.
These photographs are a preview for future paintings in this series.
Artist Bio / CV
Robert Mott (not his graffiti tag name) was born in New York City and works secretly in a studio in Brooklyn as well as undisclosed off-site locations throughout the New York subways as well as other places across the United States where he hides out at. For various years, he has been working as an anonymous member of the Poster Boy collective (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poster_Boy_(street_artist)) as one of his stand-ins. He has been exhibited in both solo and group shows particularly at 3rd Ward and other places across the country.
For design work, Mott has been involved in various commissions that combine photography, billboards, as well as sticker art. He firmly believes that the Xacto knife, scissor, technology, and collage are the weapons to combat over-commercialism in contemporary art as well as promoting a more egalitarian society using raw technique and ideas, particularly with the culture jamming mashup on anything he can get his hands on.
He likes Douglas Gordon, Kara Walker, Banksy as well as Aakash Nihalani and a hell of lotta other artists that he can't name because that would give himself away.
