Munk One has swum with the big fish; he's executed work for Warner Bros., created the art work for Snoop Dogg's critically acclaimed Snoopify app -- if you don't remember this, now is a good time to utilize Google -- and has been exhibited up and down the California coast, across the nation and back again. When Prints On Wood was chatting with such accomplished artists -- one who, let's say has been hired to paint a giant mural for Pearl Jam's famed 20 year anniversary concert on side-by-side billboards with friend Maxx242 -- it can be overwhelming. That's a lot of cool stuff to do in one lifetime. As such, Munk One and Kim from POW take it easy and chat about his first POW print titled "Everlasting Love" and shamelessly recap some career highlights thus far.
Hey Munk. Can you talk to me about your print "Everlasting Love." What's going on in that piece's imagery?Everlasting Love is 12 x 12 in. (30.48 x 30.48 cm)
Sure. It shows an owl and a fox inside a cactus and the characters are holding hands. To me, it was a really personal piece. I think I was trying to express a feeling of love that's there without any distractions, or anything taking away from it; no matter what's going on, the love is still there. The owl is awake during the day; the fox is asleep. There are different elements that don't exactly go along with everlasting love, but they're still holding hands.
Why did "Everlasting Love" stand out for you as a painting to print on wood? [POW and I] talked about releasing some art work at some point and I kind of just felt like this one fit the wood element. It's an earthy painting in my opinion. I don't know, I really just had a good feeling on this one as far as the look of it. Also, the border has some wood element to it so I just thought it'd be really great for Prints on Wood.
