Yesterday I was putting together the Daily Inspiration #343 and some images (sent by our reader enrico305) really got my attention. The images were from mr-ewokone.com and were just AWESOME! I liked them so much that I decided to get in touch with Mr Ewokone to ask further info about the site and also to say that we were interested in featuring their work here. So here is a small bio from the artist and a really cool selection from his work.
EWOK ONE 5MH born in 1976 and currently resides and paints from his ultra lavish penthouse studio in Downtown Brooklyn, where he relocated to in 1996 (from upstate NY) to attend Pratt Institute, graduating 4 years later with a BFA in Traditional Animation. Today Ewok’s work is most recognized for its distinctly warped character style and colorful play on “fine art” that has been shamelessly mimicked by the commercial art world time and again over the last decade. His original works have been exhibited in galleries (and in the streets) around the U.S., Japan, Indonesia, Canada, Puerto Rico and Mexico. These days he heavily incorporates collage element, gathered on his travels, which he uses in a symbolic manner in relation to his paintwork.
I have to say that I just loved Ewok's work! His incredible colors combinations, lines, some exaggerated characters and the overall composition, everything just match, forming an awesome result! Based in all that I recommend you to visit Ewok's website and flickr to see much more cool stuff. And as for the selection, I'm sure you will also like it, so, enjoy!! :)
