Brooklyn-based artist Joohee Park – more commonly known as Stickymonger – uses vinyl cut-outs to create her artworks and the results are pretty damn cool.
Sitckymonger creates pop-influenced works which cover a range of emotions including anxiety, prejudice and other often-dark elements of human feeling.
She puts together her work piece by piece, and often does so on public walls or glass windows – she has even recently shown her work in the World Trade Centre 4 on the windows of the 69th floor!
Park grew up in Korea and her family owned a gas station. As such, from a young age she was fascinated by oil, and to this day it impacts largely on her work. The black vinyl is a substitute for the black oil puddles often found in her family’s six oil-storage garages that she used to play in as a child.
Stickymonger has showcased her work in solo and group shows all over the world, in destinations including Los Angeles, New York, Seoul and Korea.
