Ornate jewellery boxes put the phase for tiny painted scenes filled up with nearly-microscopic individual figurines. The boxes are meticulously crafted by Canadian-Trinidadian singer Talwst, just who uses mixed news to explore the narrative of art history in combination with aspects of contrasting cultures. Although his classic cardboard boxes may cast an ancient light regarding the scene, the boxes encapsulate a present time cultural commentary through their particular plans.
Talwst calculates of his studio in Toronto, Ontario and contains a solamente convention during the memorial of Mississauga through April 12th. TALWST will also be collaborating with VICE mag this season to generate a body of work which will appear on newsstands this September. (via BOOOOOOOM)
