Caper

Caper has been an active street artist for over 12 years, creating illustrations and paintings that parody mass media and popular culture. His use of multi-layered imagery in his works at times appear idiosyncratic and quirky, whilst acting as typical by-products of American superabundance and marketing.
Caper's works are saturated with mental inertia, cliches and bad jokes, and by their nature question the coerciveness of the superficial.

Evil Keanevil

Evil Keanevil's work is a dynamic and bold exploration of entropy and deconstruction of reality. Pop culture icons, as well as original characters are deconstructed to reveal their core components, usually by liquefying or melting the subject.
Questions and themes have risen through the meltingly matter, bubbling through the muck and surfacing in the paintings themselves - which components can be stripped away, and by what measure before the subject becomes unrecognisable? When the subject is melted down, is it their perception of reality being manipulated, or the viewer's?

Whore’Hey presents:
CANDY SHOP OF HORRORS

"Appropriation comes natural to me, my awareness of conventional and pop art reflects into my life creating a space for appropriation and the art of copying. The underlying aspect of "I am not unique within my individuality" John Bauldessari (https://youtu.be/eU7V4GyEuXA) being a major influence, assisting with my structure of non-ground breaking art. My delivery and process of creation is sporadic and fuelled by my mental illness and traumatic past. Evident in my works which you will read soon. I am reaching for the title of "Mistress of Appropriation"

My maladaptive personality and artwork conflict together creating a harmonious environment for my expression.

Topic of works: sex, sex work, strippers, coffee, drugs/candy, alcohol, sleep, yoga, vegan, divorce/prison, pregnancy, abortion, rape, borderline personality disorder, money, debt, suicide, hip hop."
