If you attended the Affordable Art Fair in NYC this past weekend, you could not have missed the bright, florescent-colored Tiger Mural, entitled Fiend Cub, adorning the 18th street-exposed wall of the entrance lobby at the Metropolitan Pavilion, which was created by Orlando, Florida-based artist Boy Kong especially for the fair!
I think that just looking at the piece got everyone excited for the show before they even entered the exhibition hall!
Kong also created a companion piece in this sculpture, Blood Dancer. A 3D artist by trade, Boy Kong expertly illustrates, paints and then hand cuts, and layers pieces of wood or acrylic to create his signature aesthetic. His pieces usually incorporate a bright and upbeat color scheme while his subjects often portray a disquieting message.
