This original artwork by Killaseek (Sam Dean & Jake Feast) titled 'Hypebeast' is acrylic and ink on stretched canvas. One of a kind original artwork.
Poking fun at mainstream trends and the hypocrisy of today's viral 'hype' culture. A parody of the false economy, examining the notion of fake demand driven by the pursuit of manufactured rarity.
The very basis of creativity & originality is toyed with when designed as a false idol for direct sale, everyday items are fetishised in a branded world, where the product as a deity, acts as some kind of metaphor for clout or success.
'Hypebeast" explores the contradictions and motivations of this cultural phenomenon. A subversion of classic motifs, graphic & bold pop cultural references are juxtaposed against one another in a rough manner, making a statement and asking questions of the hyper real world we live in today
