art: blaxploitation in watercolor – the work of argentinian artist tata monie

October 22, 2014

Meet Argentinian artist Tata Monie. The fine artist who originally trained in advertising and graphic design, is heavily inspired by the Blaxploitation film era and captures the iconic films of this era using just watercolor techniques, as though capturing movie stills with a camera. In his own words, what draws the artist to this era is ‘The Funk, Gangsters, and gender’. Explore Monie’s work, below.
