LA graffiti artist Shark Toof channels his inner shark. Of course

Meet Shark Toof. He’s the guy from LA who wheat pastes his trademark shark logo everywhere he can reach. The shark is his spirit animal. Why a shark, you ask?

His art stands out with it’s energetic, graphic style that relies on chiaroscuro and other stylistic elements reminiscent of German Expressionism and classic graphic novels. Go on, take a big bite out of the book he published last summer.
