ABOUT THE ART
"The Cut it Up – Do it Yourself print is an iteration of my Obey Icon Face inspired by my history of using an X-acto knife to create designs, make collages, cut spray-paint stencils, and cut illustrations from Rubylith (a graphic art and screen printing film). Many of my well-known images, including the Obey Icon Face, were created using an X-acto, a marker, a photocopier, and cut and paste techniques before I knew how to use a computer.
The computer is a great tool, but it can be too safe and sterile… Don’t be afraid to cut things up, make mistakes, and get some overspray on pristine paper!"
