Iagazzo in Chiang Mai

Art by Iagazzo – Chiang Mai, Thailand

This summer I stumbled upon Iagazzo Patinas’ work in Chiang Mai Thailand. I can’t find much info about him online (and good for him!) except that he’s from Spain.

I love his whimsical style and the retro patterns he uses behind his stencils. He also has a fondness for butterflies

And beautiful women

Aspects of his work make me wonder if he was/is a graphic artist

It’s kind of fun not to know.

He does love dancing girls

I hope I run into his work again in another country. The happy freewheeling nature of his artwork makes me smile.

WRDSMTH in Chicago

WRDSMTH in Chicago – Hubbard Street Mural Project

I love this guy. I discovered him on Instagram initially and have followed him for months.¬†His technique combines a stenciled vintage typewriter with a short inspirational message “typed” on a wheat paste sheet. Simple, straightforward and striking. All the best S’s.

Until recently I’d only seen his work online because he’s based in LA. However, in the week I’ve been here in Chicago, I’ve found a number of his pieces around town.

Take a look at some of his Chicago work below and read this Hustle & Deal Flow interview if you want a bit more of his background.
