Spectacle Loves D3N!@L

Street artist D3N!@L got our attention at this years Distillery Art Show for sure and not just because his tent was right across from our building B53 shop, his art is large in both size and presence. Using mixed media materials and an old school graffiti influence D3N!@L makes pieces that make you think and feel classy at the same time, after all that is what art is all about right??

Here is the artists manifesto straight from his own website.
DENIAL, or “D3N!@L” is a Canadian graffiti and mixed-media artist. His moniker is a phonetic mix-up representing his first name, and by definition, pokes fun at modern advertising, politics, and media messages that society is often “in denial” about. DENIAL is known for his prolific guerrilla-marketing campaign, which takes public aim at ideas involving social-justice, pop-culture, mass-media, and “New World Order” conspiracy theories. With over 500,000 of his adhesive logos displayed in public places around the world, the DENIAL PROJECT has become a conceptual piece of marketing absurdism. DENIAL intends to challenge traditional ideas about graffiti and public art, as well as the excessive corporate use of public space.

Thanks D3N!@L, Spectacle Loves You!
