A pop stencil artist based in Tokyo, Campbell La Pun, has recently landed an awesome exhibit in the NYC Krause Gallery, for his “Excess Fumes” project. Employing everything from “stencils to aerosol and acrylic paint on wood and canvas, La Pun takes us careering through the modern world.” The paintings on his spray paint cans are reflections of the bright and neon world of pop culture iconography. He is inspired by spray paint cans because they offer a world of infinite colors and creations and because they are the source of beautiful wall mirages all over the world.
La Pun’s exhibit featured a large canvas version on of each of his cans from his project, Excess Fumes. The cans, when seen displayed really portray “a neon world of candy colored madness that perpetually blinks in the artificial brightness of Times Square in New York and the Shibuya district in Tokyo.” Each one was recognizable at first glance and makes a huge statement because the first thing to jump out at you is the color and then the branding. It was truly amazing to see his work put up in such a great gallery and to see how he is bring the world most notorious street art material and answered his own question of “from the furious minute of shaking to the sound of the clunking marble, gently pushing the cap releasing the built up pressure inside through a tiny hole to produce a mist of color to create what?”
