Alan Delaini - March 2018
- Urbanimal paints with a distinct and recognizable style, combining elements from his formal background in graphic design with classic street art technique. Psychedelic animals, people, and symbols recur in Urbanimal’s work and underlie the artist’s continued interest in how cultures – both real and imaginary – come together to define their shifting landscapes. While the artist’s most readily spotted work is cruising across NYC on dozens of custom painted trucks, his portfolio features a handful of prominent mixed media murals integrating spray paint, stencil, hand-brush, and wheatpaste features. Urbanimal has honed an unmistakable trademark direction and is rapidly becoming a household name in the local graffiti scene.
