Art Basel Artist Profile: HERM LIFE
Herm Life is one of the more humorous artists to ever put his work on New York's streets. In a graffiti and street art world filled with machismo and bravado, Herm makes a point to dissect these silly notions and create art that speaks to an ironic understanding of his time and place.
Choosing equally from pop-culture to American iconography, Herm lampoons anything that takes itself too seriously.
By choosing mediums from skatedecks to pumpkins, he also makes a point to stick it to the art world and their "acceptable" canvases.
We are proud to have Herm Life represent Artists 4 Israel at Art Basel. We just hope he takes it seriously!
