Banksy was arrested today. Was it really Banksy? Good thing I took this picture next to one of his works; this was when I visited Brighton a couple of years ago. I’d like a nice trip to Brighton right now, actually.

Finally! SOLO EXHIBITION, Boonika, Zagreb, opening October 3rd. Be there!
EVENT | Booteeq Artist Web Shop | Boonika on Facebook
Vuk Oreb, perhaps best known for his contribution and work in the Split hip hop group Kiša Metaka, flies his colors both sonically and visually. When he’s not behind a pad with a pen noting down social commentary in rhymes he’s behind his computer creating visual mash-ups, cover art and t-shirt friendly drawings. His inspiration very much pop culture derived shows attributes of a time when people look to memes to exploit the absurdities of lifestyle. However, lifestyle and the visuals we chose to represent it have never had more relevance. Western culture’s current visual preferences are abound in Vuk’s opus. He embraces modern mannerisms indulging in the current state of visual landshaping by showcasing his own take on the neon swag-swag takeover. Loud is king. 
Art and design seem to be formally separated. The lines get blurred when designers start to inject their personality (not merely interests) into the creative process. Then the results become more than just product or graphics. Vuk brings his vision to life by not only reinventing pop culture by bending the space-time continuum. He adds details that reveal rethinking as well as reshaping. These details are yours to discover. 
There is no conscious mass appeal pursuit in his design. Frankenstein, Carlton, Trekkies, Batman, Brad Radwolf and even Dylan McKay are his pals, not exploited Marilyn Monroes or cans of tomato soup. The subjects seem carefully chosen. As do the decorative fill-ins and backgrounds. Whether hexagon or paisley patterns Vuk leaves you thinking that he has some intimate insider knowledge that makes the design-deco patterns he chooses not only important to the work but important to the artist. 
Along with the neon, the pop culture interpolations, the collage synthesis and the obsession with style this body of work has not forgotten to honor original pop/pulp culture expression – comics/cartoons. As a whole there is much to learn and like about Vuk’s creativity. It’s all very now and very wow. In a time when loudest means best his visuals speak loud and clear.Lame-O for Boonika
