Fine Art print realized on 308g cotton paper by the artist Blvckjep based on an original design in a limited edition of 20 pieces. The artwork reinterprets Spongebob in a creepy style, inspired by the Marshmellow musical project, the eyes are cross-shaped, a typical trait used in comics to indicate death. The pupils reproduce the famous Nike symbol and the face is deformed until it becomes a colored stain. The character of Spongebob is therefore represented in a state of suffering and discomfort as is typical of the Creepop style. The artwork is signed on the back, is produced in a limited edition of 20 copies and is accompanied by authentication. The work is not framed.

 

Giuseppe Pirolo aka Blvckjep is a Neapolitan artist and designer born in 1998.

Despite his studies in business administration, he has always had a strong drive towards art :

"I've been drawing since I can remember, I couldn't identify a date, a day when I started".

Young and eclectic, he studied as a self-taught experimenting with various techniques, does not identify with any type of tool, nor material.

His favorite subjects are those of Pop culture, we find Mickey Mouse, Goofy, Pluto, but also Homer Simpson or Pac-Man, from here part of his review in key "creepy".

Pop icons are deformed into grimaces of pain, the ugly and creepy is staged with a colorful dress, happy, but at the same time full of disturbance. He himself calls his style "Creepop," a disarmingly topical vision of our society.  Even the drafting of color and stroke are not precise in order to emphasize this duality, this mask, which hides the darkness inherent in each of us.

The touch is pungent, but ironic, in a precise and immediate reading of the current condition of every human being.
