Best of #orangepeelseries (2015)
If you don't know, now you know...
- 1.Untitled (2015)Though untitled, this first piece from the Orange Peel Series really sets the tone for what we can expect from this burgeoning new artist.
- 2.Low Hanging Fruit (2015)Some of his earlier work was quite literal, though no less effective.
- 3.Early Warning System (2015)We see the use of a photo filter here which really hits home the artist's message.
- 4.Orange Lives Matter (Still - 2015)Considered controversial and provocative at the time, this might be his most memorable and talked about piece 50 years from now.
- 5.Strange Fruit (2015)This marks this first use of sharpie and writing in his work on the Orange Peel Series. Strange fruit indeed.
- 6.Stash House (2015)We see his work evolve as he matures. Playing with pop culture themes and urban decay is where the artist really shines.
- 7.Performance Enhancing Drugs (2015)One of the only instances where the artist uses vulgarity to try to convey his message. Though not quite effective here, it's still a very relevant piece to the work as a whole.
- 8.Once You Pop... 2015)Though some have tried to make the argument that this is a self-portrait, I find it a commentary on the seduction of selling out. One of the few times the artist tried to make his work go viral by incorporating product recognition.
- 9.Choice [Paid for by the Committee Against Organic Farming] (2015)Not only a comment on the sustainable food movement in this country, but a deep look at the existential dilemma of free will.
- 10.Good For You (2015)As the pieces mature, we notice the continued reliance on outside products and brand recognition along with a sort of laziness that didn't exist in the earlier work when the artist was trying to find his voice.
