EVENT • BOOTIE-LICIOUS
The featured Hypha beer can artwork profiles a section of a larger artwork painted by Marcus Coldeway, a West Coast mural, abstract and graffiti artist. This artwork was chosen as it best describes his current collection of work and features the artist's character calling card "Mr. Broccoli".
The artwork titled "Real Shit" is part of an ongoing series of works that strive to combine abstract art and graffiti into a high-energy style that is raw yet clean. The playful backgrounds are a mix of bright colours, graffiti-inspired shapes and letter work. Black letters and accents are then layered onto the background resulting in a subtle depth. Even on the beer can label you see the texture of the canvas and get a taste of the depth from the original artwork.
