Fourth of July | American Art
Alec Monopoly, the assumed alias, is originally from New York City, and now runs his studio out of Miami. The artist is well-recognized for his playful depictions of familiar characters from the quintessentially American board game Monopoly.
Starting his career in the framework of street art, Monopoly, to this day, continues to use spray-paint to depict bright and cheerful scenes. Monopoly’s unique take on life mimicking a board-game is playful and thoughtful. He uses typical American street art styles and combines it with the juxtaposing images of American luxury. His painted characters are putting cash in the bank, enjoying fine dining, and visiting famous American landmarks.
