The Megamunden Show

March 7, 2014
Asja Nastasijevic is an Art Historian with the major in Modern Art. She's involved in art writing and criticism for several years now. Art is her passion and writing about it is both work and pleasure. Among modern art movements she loves Fauvism, Abstract Expressionism, and POP ART and her favorite artists are Henri Matisse, Mark Rothko and Andy Warhol. She fell in love with Street Art when she first saw ROA’s Sleepy Pigs in Brussels few years ago. Since then, she devotedly explores this form of artistic expression. She hates when someone asks her whether the street art is a real art. What makes any art a real art? Art is an evolutionary act with constant changes in its performance. In Asja’s opinion, the real art is what you want to hang on the walls of your living room, as simple as that. So she wants to hang the works of Ron English, Gaia and ROA above her TV cabinet or to place the artworks of Mark Jenkins and Isaac Cordal next to her sofa. She enjoys bowling and doodling.

British illustrator Ollie Munden (aka Megamunden) has an ongoing solo show at No Walls. The show marks the opening of the gallery’s new building whilst acting as the perfect follow up to the worldwide success of Megamunden’s ‘The Tattoo Coloring Book’ published in 2013 by Laurence King Publishing. In recent years MEGAMUNDEN has immersed himself in tattoo art and culture which led Laurence King Publishing to commission ‘The Tattoo Coloring Book’. The book is filled with 120 hand drawn illustrations of pinups, butterflies, skulls, tigers, dragons, birds, fish, and other classic designs.

America and Japanese Tattoos

Looking to American and Japanese influenced tattoo styles, ‘The Megamunden Show’ also shed lights on Megamunden’s signature style developed during his time creating the book. The show covers not only his original illustrations and prints on wall but also Megamunden’s illustrations onto sculpture, leather products, fabric and even musical instruments. Collaborations with Raw & Auburn, Pedro Oyarbide, Shaun Swainland, Josh Munden and Jeff Nichols are also included.

Melting Pot Style

MEGAMUNDEN leaves a trail of work on walls, billboards, magazines, figurines, products, paper and skin; from crafting for corporate giants to meticulous tattoo designs for private clients. Vintage skate art, psychedelic style, nature and an essence of the Far East are all combined to create MEGAMUNDEN’s signature melting-pot style.
