Walking on a random old China town street in Portland to discover the work of #caratoes and #smitheone.
The first was “born to Hong Kong parents in Zottegem, a tiny village near Ghent. She moved to Amsterdam immediately upon graduating from university in Game Design, worked as a 3d artist at a post-production house and later at an advertising agency. She started her street painting on the streets of Amsterdam in 2011. Several years later she decided to move to Hong Kong to discover her roots and ended up staying developing her artistic style”.
I wonder where and how she met with Smithe, “mexican graffiti artist and illustrator, which compositional style is disturbing yet nostalgic, with the use of retro hues and soft coloring, his motifs fall on self-destruction and the dismemberment from soul, body, wants and needs”.
