Brain Tumor, Mixed Media on Paper

Portrait of the artist (Photographer unknown)


...Short for "The Me Nobody Knows". New York based TMNK is sort of a mystery. It seems to be a conscious decision on his part to stay out of the spotlight, letting his art speak for itself. He dubs his work 
"urban hieroglyphics".

There's something about his work that elicits a sense of heaviness in my chest. The child-like forms and simple shapes give way to a deeper, more complex story.

Check out his blog to view more of his work.
