Inspired by Ed Ruscha and Richard Prince I make (mostly) satirical art which earned Agit-Pop's Twitter handle 14M video views, 180M impressions and 80K followers in three years. A few notable likes, retweets, and replies: Judd Apatow, Patricia Arquette, Paul Feig, Adam McKay, Kara Swisher... oh and Cher.
I was invited to join Foundation in June 2021. "Evolution Now," my genesis, currently has a reserve price of 1 ETH in the secondary market.
Using constructed pieces and readymades - stock and found video and photos - I add text and context. In some of the works, I manipulate the imagery and mix media. Others are text only -- words with moves.
Although I have no formal art training, I've spent my adult life working with visuals. I began my career in publishing as photo director for Ingrid Sischy at Interview. Ingrid was one of the world's leading experts in art and photography. I held the same position under Tina Brown, editor of Vanity Fair and The New Yorker. I was also photo director of GQ.
"End of an Error?" my limited-edition capsule collection of high-end sweatshirts dropped in December 2020.
I'm a short filmmaker; one starred Katie Holmes.
Here are samples of my film and print work. Artists I've commissioned include Alasdair McLellan, Inez and Vinoodh, Nick Knight, and Steven Klein. - Bradley Young
