LOS ANGELES -- Art Life, an online gallery that focuses on contemporary art, is pleased to announce that they now have a number of original and exclusive works by graffiti artist Alec Monopoly. This graffiti artist has achieved international fame for his pieces. ArtLife.com is the official gallery of Alec Monopoly.
Avery Andon, founder of Art Life, says: "Alec Monopoly has worked across Asia, Europe, Los Angeles, Miami, and New York, using a range of different materials to depict various iconic pop culture characters. We are very proud to be able to feature some of his work in our online store."
According to the artist, who is only identified by his alias, Alec Monopoly, his inspiration comes from his mother, who was an artist herself. At a young age, he abandoned the academic form of art and took his own path instead. He gained international acclaim for this, having been featured in the Dirt Floor, Juxtapoz, Complex Magazine, the Huffington Post, Vibe, Billboard Magazine, Playboy Magazine, Rolling Stone, the New York Post, the London Times, and the Wall Street Journal, to name but a few. "Paramount Pictures even commissioned the artist to design the logo for their production company, INSURGE," adds Andon.
Although a street artist, Monopoly does not engage in vandalism. His art is depicted not on business or government properties, but rather on abandoned warehouses and buildings. The alias took inspiration from Bernie Madoff, and is a criticizm on the deregulation and billion-dollar bailouts of the global banking system.
People are encouraged to visit the Art Life website to see the different pieces of Alec Monopoly art for sale. Their stock currently includes original paintings, prints, and the collaboration between Alec Monopoly and Helmut Newton, which focuses heavily on the late David Bowie and also on the female body. Those interested in making a purchase can inquire with Art Life directly. This can easily be done directly through the gallery's website.
