It Must Be The Abs

Stencil piece by Polish artist Igor Dobrowolski titled “Sick Future” found at the Berlin Wall in Germany. This work is a series of stencils relating to social media. Dobrowolski likes to depict the bad sides of humans and draw attention to social and political issues.

“There are many topics that I try to move in my work, or maybe the topics move me, such as death, depression, war, problems of the poor and homeless, addiction, narcissism, lack of empathy.”
– Igor Dobrowolski

This is how I found the piece two days ago. And below is a better shot right after it was finished.

Who is Isaac Cordal?

Isaac Cordal is a sculpture artist from Galicia who creates miniatures sculpted from concrete. His little people are always thoughtfully placed in the streets. They can be found in many unusual and unlikely places such as in gutters, on top of buildings and on top of bus shelters.
Cordal manages to capture a lot of emotions through his miniatures.

“Men and women are suspended and isolated in a motion or pose that can take on multiple meanings. The sympathetic figures are easy to relate to and to laugh with. They present fragments in which the nature, still present, maintains encouraging symptoms of survival. The precariousness of these anonymous statuettes, at the height of the sole of the passers, represents the nomadic remainders of an imperfect construction of our society. These small sculptures contemplate the demolition and reconstruction of everything around us. They catch the attention of the absurdity of our existence.”

Who Is BK Foxx?

BK Foxx is a New York-based artist who likes to create large-scale murals, working freehand with spray paint. Her murals can be found mostly throughout New York City.
BK Foxx also focuses on social awareness of animals which is why she often depicts them in her murals.

Here is a little bit of what she shared in an interview for Animal New York:

How did you get your name?
My initials are BK. And my little icon is a fox. With an extra “X” because “BKFox” was taken on Instagram (no joke.) My given name is allegedly from an ’80s sitcom.

Why do what you do?
Because I can. Because I speak better visually than verbally. And because nothing beats the feeling of standing next to people admiring the wall you painted while they have no idea you painted it.

Do you bring your smart phone into the bathroom with you? Why?
No. I try to leave my phone alone as much possible. Notifications can turn you into a lab rat on cocaine pawing at your screen.

Mostly sugar.
