While most people are familiar with the brand for its troop of cuddly cute monsters, the ‘We Kill You Show’ at the Gordon Daniel Gallery also featured paintings with mental well-being expressions. These paintings depict actual phrases that came out of Justin’s anxiety while preparing for the show.
According to the artist, he waits for creative inspiration to hit him before he creates, which can be nerve-wracking when commitment to a show has been made. One of the paintings, ‘Everything Changes,’ is based on an actual tattoo that the artist has on the back of his arms. The signs’ layout is based on the diner and retro advertising signs found throughout the 40’s-60’s.
