Chimp - Mental Weight *SOLD*

Acrylic and aerosol on box frame board.

1220 W x 1440 H x 70mm D 

About the Artwork: This 'Hero' artwork of Chimp's 'Social Woes' exhibition is truly stunning. Capturing the burdens and anxieties brought on by social media, Mental Weight abstracts these into forms and textures that weigh on the individual. Thick underpainting is layered with sharp, clean areas of bold colour. The portrait is painted using only spray paint and contrasts with the flat areas and gestural mark-making using paint. The colour tones used are bright and uplifting and this also contrasts with the woman's distant look.  

About the Artist: CHIMP is a Wellington-based artist with many murals to his name across New Zealand. In Christchurch, his work can be found on the Justice and Emergency Services precinct. CHIMP first started painting skateboards at a young age, moving to large artworks on the streets and then to solo exhibitions. More recently, he completed a three-month artist residency with Street Artist in Residence in California, USA, painted a large mural for Street Prints Papaioea 2020, and traveled to Melbourne, Australia for Can’t Do Tomorrow - urban art festival.
