AHOL | R.I.P. Mokie
AHOL | Miami, FL
Ahol, whose raw yet instantly recognizable street murals evaporate the divide between high and low art, often jumbles disparate themes from mass media, popular culture and marginalized pockets of soci- ety. He often draws inspiration from the urban environment and sys- tems of society which dehumanize its inhabitants. Ahol’s deceptively simple, yet complex renderings both portray the veneer of our ev- eryday surroundings and the dull, job-related conflicts often encoun- tered in a dysfunctional workplace.
The South Florida native is best known for his soaring urban murals depicting expansive fields of drowsy eyes, reflecting his unique vision of life, labor and unrequited love of the mean streets of Miami.
