Chicago Artist: POSE.
So sticking with my last blog post this week’s is also on another local street artist, Pose. Pose is a world famous Chicago street artist. He started out just doing spray can graffiti. Later he gained a spray can sponsorship, which shot him and his work into the spot light. Now he does work for various companies like Lifted Research Group (LRG) and The Seventh Letter. I really envy his style of line work and the extremely good details that are in his work. The way I found out about his work is through his can sponsor Ironlak. At first when you see his graffiti work you wont believe it’s done by a spray can but done in Photoshop. His studio work is very similar to his street work. The thing I found really interesting is when he goes into the studio he struggles at first because he feels removed from the process… I too feel this. He enjoys the process more then the finished product. Pose’s illustrations are really cool he gets inspiration from old fashion 1920’s gang cards. With bold line work and his famous detail work Pose make amazing black and white illustrations. Then later he will take the black and white pieces and decide to add color or not. Here are some videos of him in a interview and then him spraying to show you his process.
