STICKYMONGER

Stickymonger, is a Brooklyn-based artist with an obsession for converting spaces into imaginary worlds that emerge as giant mural installations.

Stickymonger’s murals are composed of black “stickers,” meticulously cut from giant sheets of vinyl and installed piece-by-piece by the artist, creating images that melt and flow together like rivers of ink cascading down the gallery’s walls. Stickymonger’s tactile and visual obsession with fluid and sticky blackness is related directly to her childhood experiences. Growing up in Korea, in a home adjacent to her family’s gas station,Stickymonger’s backyard housed six fuel storage garages. There, the future artist would hide among the oil cans, often stepping in and playing with the dense black petroleum puddles that were ubiquitous in her world.

Her subjects are visceral:darkness, prejudice, and anxiety are represented as eyes, holes and little girls, allowing the viewer to vicariously experience Stickymonger’s sardonic signification view point of human nature.
