Description

"For the “bootleg artist” known as Swampy, the world is an endless living canvas. Variations on his signature “swampdonkey” tag — the skull of some imaginary tusked creature — can be found in almost every imaginable setting across America: dilapidated skyscrapers in Oakland, Calif.; train trestles in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico; gallery walls in Atlanta or Brooklyn. Though he’s best known for his graffiti, Swampy’s output varies wildly and incorporates a kaleidoscope of materials, styles and settings. His studio is almost entirely mobile, his materials are liberated as needed from large art supply chains, and he travels entirely for free by hopping freight trains."
