Artist Highlight: The Phantom

Update: You can buy The Phantom’s first print is now available from for $125.00

I couldn’t help but laugh when RJ emailed me about posting about street artist The Phantom. Just like him my first thought was “Isn’t this the guy that created that Rage Against the Machine cover for “The Battle of Los Angeles.”” Well, yes, it is, (and yes I know who Rage is. I may be young, but I’m not that young), but he also does some really good outdoor workswork that I haven’t seen before and was not even aware of to be honest. Concentrating on the idea of outlines, shadows and social rebellion, The Phantom’s black and white pieces have a powerful impact amongst colorful tags and blank walls.

* Vandalog was sent pictures of the artist himself, but he freaks me out beyond belief. Clowns scare the crap out of me, so face paint and an upside down cross painted on someone’s forehead would go in the category of freaking me out.*
