Young & Battaglia
Comedy wall art is not something our lovely followers are unfamiliar with, in fact Kirin is one of our more prominent exponents of this with his extremely popular artwork series ‘The Bubblegum Collection’. The Tongue collection isn’t entirely unlike the Bubblegum collection. Taking traditional pre 18th century portraits and maintaining their grand formal aesthetic but injected some fun by the simple use of poking the tongue out. Lady with Tongue Out 2 shows a very regal and formally dressed woman directly looking at you the viewer and poking her tongue at you, a very tongue in cheek wall art you might say.
Kirin Young is a graphic designer and artist based in Bangkok, Thailand.
He says the best thing about his job “Working on jobs that are never the same, seeing and collecting new ideas and inspiring thoughts from working with a variety of personalities. The feeling when the job is done is the best feeling in the world, a sense of satisfaction and pride. Getting to be creative, it makes me happy to be able to make art”
We asked Kirin, if you had a quote, proverb or a mantra printed on your shirt what would it say?
"THE THINGS THAT MAKE ME DIFFERENT ARE THE THINGS THAT MAKE ME ME." PIGLET (FROM WINNIE THE POOH) Kirin Young
Kirin works on lots of projects with Mineheart and is one of our most loved partners. To get inspired, he travels extensively, going to new places and seeing new things, old things and all sorts of different things, cultures, experiences and art. When working Kirin utilises photography, considering all sorts of things, lighting, angles and shadows combined with some photo editing to create a believable and fun image.
