Neo Pop Art Brut vs Abstract Street Expressionism

The colorful work of Bortusk covered by – erm – some abstract street expressionism?

While updating a post from back in 2013 I realized, over the years I have been working on the archives of a street art phenomenon (!). His name, Bortusk Leer.

Fed up with people being angry, disappointed, sad and disillusioned with life, Leer sees it as his duty to brighten up the world and spread some happiness. Over a decade Bortusk has developed a signature voice and style, creating manic, euphoric creatures (his monsters) plus other lively abstract pieces, videos, TV shows and numerous psychedelic assemblages of Neo-Pop-Art-Brut.” From the Bortusk website.

The images above are some of the more recent works on paper, using slogans.
