KIRAN-X - The Corrosive Empire

" 'The Corrosive Empire' is a new series of stencil works by KIRAN-X inspired from his fascination of decomposing, mega size billboards of north-east Asia. Stationed somewhere in the rural-industrial landscape and too expensive to take down, these pollution smothered and weather ravaged billboard faces would advertise cosmetics products to a ghostly arena. To KIRAN-X, they are the dark sirens of irony clinging to existence, for one last seduction of a lost consumer. Once you are mesmerized, you cannot escape the manufactured decadence.

Using a variety of new stencil techniques, cultivated surfaces and deviously grinding mayhem, KIRAN-X recreates the journey through excessive vanity glory to the destructive oblivion of these marketing idols in visceral-aerosol detail."- KIRAN-X
