** SOLD OUT**
The inspiration and reference for this print are drawn from a third-person puzzle-action video game named Katamari Damacy from Japan. The purpose of the game is to rebuild stars, constellations, and moon - which were accidentally destroyed. This reconstruction is achieved by rolling a magical, highly adhesive ball called a Katamari. As it rolls around various locations, it collects whatever object it touches until the ball has grown great enough to become a star.
Scien and Klor applied this concept to their own graffiti art universe as if they rolled a highly adhesive katamari on the wall print artwork of various pieces that they painted. Collecting all graffiti’s codes, ranging from arrows, letters, colors, « throw-ups », effects, graphic design elements, to their mascot, characters, to the pieces of wood from their mural composition, until the ball was a massive Mix Mashup of their work.
The mash-up is a fusion of disparate elements. The elements and items are based on their own creations - drawn by hand at first and then evolve to vector, to painting. Each mixed mashup is a window into their body of work. A slideshow of their art and family. A wad of love for graffiti.
Even if it looks chaotic, in the composition, each element is thought millimeter under the graphic designer's eyes of Scien and Klor. Before moving on to the realization of the final canvas.
For sure the result can look weird and heavily stylized, rarely attempting any semblance of existing street art through the elements and items used are based on their own creations, hand sketching first as ever.
