We've had the chance to get invited in Ewok's studio, in Brooklyn. Here's the creative atmosphere we were happy to find.
We knew Ewok's work on walls and we’d seen some of his pieces on canvas, but when we got to his studio we were blown away by his productivity. Stickers, canvas, calligraphy, toys, clothes design, illustration.....
Ewok’s canvases are incredible. Using old materials ranging from 1930’s cinema tickets to old bank statements, stamps, and hand written letters from the early 1900's in the composition of his work. Ewok recycles otherwise forgotten objects into cleverly composed pieces of multi-layered, vibrantly coloured art.
The juxtaposition of the old material, reclaimed from Antique shops, flea markets and second-hand trade, against the modern caricatures makes his work both interesting and unique and especially intriguing in person, and yet a deeper element unseen through online documentation.
Be sure to check out his site or visit one of his exhibitions. Here's a little sneak peak of some pictures we took in his studio, you can see it by clicking on the galery (right side bar). Stay tuned, we'll publish Ewok's interview really soon.
