Description

“My artwork is pretty cut and dry,” POSE says. “I’m taking from the world around me – whether it be bits of signs, or my wife’s old, childhood books.”

Named “One to Watch” by CNN in 2015 as part of their international television series that shined a light on up-and-coming creative talent set to be the next big names in culture, modern pop artist, POSE, has been applauded for his inventive ability to take every day, throw-away things and introduce them into the world to communicate something much deeper. While his work relies on harnessing very simple human emotions like love, loss, and triumph, it’s presented in a complex union of vivid colors and layered application which aims for something much more profound than is at the literal, surface level.
