January 13, 2016

Take a look at the work of pop artist and painter Samuel Mougey. Mougey has a diverse body of street art-inspired work that ranges from portraits of artistic greats like Erykah Badu, Ayo, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Lenny Kravitz, and Patrice to graphic design renderings of animals. Even if he’s not creating art in public spaces, Mougey’s work is layered with gritty textures and graffiti imagery. See some of his work down below and check him out on Facebook.
