Artist of the Day…Colasa

Another two art forms I’ve always admired are Graffiti and Street Art. I almost sort of feel like the vandalism that’s done to create these works of art usually makes the space it’s painted on look better. I think the hold up people have with it is that in the past, graffiti was mostly used by gangs to indicate territory and whatnot, but now, I think it’s become a much more respected (well should be respected anyway…) form of art. A perfect example of this is the work by today’s artist, Colasa.

This Taiwanese artist makes his stencils by using his own die cut stencils. The level of detail in these stencils is amazing. The themes Colasa makes apparent in his work is also really intricate as well – death, darkness, and abnormality play a huge role in many of his works. Colasa’s imagery has been featured on everything from skateboards to bus stops to graphic tees.

I love this sort of avant garde artwork. I like how gritty his pieces are. To see more of his work (which also includes some interesting installation and photography pieces) check out his flickr.
