From The Archives: Curtis Kulig

THE NEW YORK ARTIST IS A MASTER OF MANY MEDIUMS FROM PAINT AND PHOTOGRAPHY TO NEON.

Spray painted on city walls, lit up in neon and printed on goods like tee shirts and stickers, CITIPHILE Curtis Kulig’s “Love Me” phrase may have made him famous, but the artist is more than just one beloved mantra. Kulig’s repertoire spans painting, silkscreen, neon, photography and sculpture; all of which espouse his signature pop culture bend. His lesser known “bathroom floor” series (pictured in the background below) uses acrylic to give otherwise hum-drum floors a dose of sporty, street-like cool (they could easily be the skin of a basketball or mesh of a jersey), while his lesser-seen photography usually spotlights city dwellers as intriguing as Kulig himself. Check out a few of his works below and head to his site for even more design candy.
