We welcome back Canadian street artist Denial
as he returns for his 13th RUN! With his latest 3-colorway hand-embellished prints, Denial takes another stab at mega store Walmart.
"I kind of have a few issues with Walmart. I hate Walmart. I wanted to do a painting that expressed an open ended statement about the company. Almost as it is a worldwide religion. Also you aren’t sure if the characters in the painting are protesting or celebrating Walmart.
The original piece was part of a show I did in Toronto, Canada called “Cut and Paste”. It was done in 2012 using 25 stencils and spray paint on wood. For the print versions here we have 3 colorways available, also each print is hand embellished with spray paint drips. This provides an interesting effect as some of the drips are in the print digitally and some are real. Looks sweet!" - Denial

In 2000 he adopted the moniker ‘DENIAL’ as a means of poking fun at advertising, politics and media messages that contemporary society is often ‘in denial’ about. Since then he has maintained an ongoing global street-campaign of over 500, 000 stickers, placards and murals, using the alpha-numeric characters ‘D3N!@L’. Intended as a conceptual means of marketing absurdism, DENIAL also challenges traditional notions of graffiti and public art through his bold and often satirical visual subversions.
In 2012 DENIAL started ‘Free 4 All Walls’ which is the largest public art project of its kind in South West Ontario. Bringing artists from around the world to beautify and re-invigorate public walls around Windsor, the government funded program has been a huge success in supporting the local community and promoting the value of street-art in contemporary society. Invited artists who have painted murals include: Nychos (Austria), Bask (USA), Omen(Canada), Ben Frost (Australia), Nosego(USA), Persue (USA), Rime (USA), Above (USA), Elicser (Canada), High 5 (Canada), Nekoes (USA), Labrona (Canada), Gaia (USA), Kwest (Canada), Spud (Canada), Earthcrusher (Canada) , Czr Prz (USA), Chou (Canada), Uber5000 (Canada) and XRAY (Canada). The project intends to continue well into 2014.
