Monochrome is Helena Vizcaíno, a visual artist and illustrator from Spain. She is currently living and working in Helsinki, Finland. She illustrates dark universes that don’t exist, elements from her imagination, natural and outer space elements. Her interests go from animation to the tattoo culture, to fashion design and advertising, where she also finds her inspiration.

by Ariadna Zierold

Half-Dutch, half-Brazilian, THE KID is a self-educated contemporary artist who questions restlessly since his early teenage years the notion of social determinism and the thin frontier between innocence and corruption.

THE KID is a committed supporter of the International Non Governmental Organization Human Rights Watch, which defends Human Rights worldwide, in particular for its fight against unfair social discrimination and inhumane juvenile justice.

Check out his sculpture “Too young to die?”

New Mural by Mister Cartoon For Coney Art Walls in New York

Los Angeles muralist and tattoo artist Mister Cartoon painted this contemplative mural while in New York City for Coney Art Walls. The wall addresses modern themes, as a 1920’s style keystone cop is chasing a man wearing a black hoodie, while the Grim Reaper looks down on them. In the other corner, a bikini-clad Angel holds her cell phone and snaps a ‘selfie’, uninterested in the chase below.

Coney Art Walls, curated by Jeffrey Deitch, will feature work by many established graffiti and street artists, including Swoon, How & Nosm, Miss Van and Daze. With more than 25 temporary walls, the installation will remain up in Coney Island, Brooklyn into September, with no announced end date.

“Everybody has a story. In drawing random people I often wonder what they’re thinking, what troubles they may have had and what their stories may be. It’s a beautiful mystery.”-Brian Jarrell
