Artist of the moment……….Street artist I-Heart

 

I-Heart is a street artist based out of Vancouver, British Columbia with a style similar to Banksy. The artist, like Banksy, prefers to remain anonymous.

I-Heart enjoys making statements about social media in art.

The artist has made famous works around Vancouver including a mural in Stanley Park, the second largest park in North America behind New York’s Central Park.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

The artist Banksy is also a fan of I-Heart. Bansky shared an image the mural in Stanley Park on his website and it went viral. With the work I-Heart wanted to show how connected but yet disconnected we are now thanks to the Internet and Smart Phones.

Below a brief interview with I-Heart:

I think Andy Warhol would be a huge fan of I-Heart for the way the artist incorporates mass social media in his work.
