Eine, Simply Good
August 3, 2010
I’ve always been drawn to art that makes an impact on a particular movement. It’s hard sometimes because this art isn’t always the most technically mastered stuff. I guess coming from a design background I really respect the power of an identifiable style. Shepard Fairy, love him or hate him, has mastered a style. The London Police have turned a simple smiley face into an immediately recognizable icon. Space Invader owns the Rubik’s Cube. All of these artists have risen above the crowd because of this basic principle. Its almost like a kick in the pants how quickly you can recognize these artists. One particular kick for me has been Eine. I’ve been following his work for a while now and he has continued to stay true to his path. When you look at Eine’s installations there is no question who created it. For that, Mr. Eine, I tip my hat in your general direction.
