Shark Toof (b. 1972 Los Angeles, California)
Shark Toof is best known on the street for his iconic wheatpaste of a hand drawn shark head
with "Toof" in the mouth. His murals have also become iconographic internationally through media such as the Samsung, Lebron James commercial.
Shark Toof's current cache of paintings are an intimate look onto ourselves and our belief systems of romance and nature. A dialogue heavy in conversation between male, female, animal, and nature are pronounced by saturation of color, texture, line quality, tension of composition, and use of spacial relationships. These agitated proximities force internal questioning, leaving the viewer reflecting. Bright colors, against flat surfaces, paired with vintage, iconic, pop vignettes, sounds of love are heard. While the ever looming ferver of nature and animal energy appears to consume all participants.
