Mister Cartoon X BTS

Makers Place NFT Drops

 

 

 

Brief.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Mister Cartoon was immersed in art from an early age. He began his career as a graffiti artist before branching into murals, album covers, logos, and now most famously known for his tattoos. His richly detailed, hand-rendered designs pull much of their inspiration from the Los Angeles of Cartoon’s youth. Stars such as Eminem, Travis Barker, Slash, Dr. Dre, 50 Cent, Beyoncé, along with athletes like CC Sabathia, Amarie Stoudemire and Carlos Boozer wear Cartoon’s art on their skin.

BEYOND THE STREETS commissioned me to transform Mister Cartoon’s iconic murals to into digital NFTs. Auctioned at Makers Place, the original mural was a hand painted installation at the MOCA Los Angeles for the Art in the Streets exhibition in 2011 which would only live for the duration of the MOCA show and true to street art style was destroyed at the closing of the exhibition. The mural features a romantic street fantasy collage, mirroring real life characters from Cartoon’s own life experiences. The LA’s Finest mural pays homage to Cartoon’s L.A. using Cartoons signature black and grey tattoo style with a centerpiece with that iconic Dodger blue. You can view the drops at Makers Place.
