This second volume in Drago's Thirty-six chambers series contains work by the outsider street artists Fupete and Jack la Motta. Fantastic creatures of the imagination abound: childish, brut and emotional.
In Animal Collective, Fupete and Jack la Motta create escapist dreams through their alternative reality. The stunning addition to the 36 Chambers series leads the reader deep into amenagerie of fantastic, dark creatures accented by bold strokes and specks of gold. These creatures feature influence from the Italian streets, lending an authenticity to their portrayal as surreal daydreams from the minds of two outsiders. Fupete and Jack la Motta combine their organic styles into a world of fantasy ruled by instinct. These global artists, having created designs for brands such as Ralph Lauren and Polo Jeans in addition to having exhibits across Europe and America, bring their experiences together in this striking collection based on escaping banality."
The trip into the world of independent creativity continues with the second section of the 36 Chambers book series, an original project by Drago. The tour guides are Fupete and Jack la Motta, two deluxe outsiders from the street scene, whose mythical locale is in the zoo inhabited by the complex creatures born of their imagination: childish, brut and fantastical. Much more than charming, the world created by the duo is a lexicon of possibilities. No passport is needed to go on the trip, just turn the pages and allow yourself to be submerged into a parallel universe.
