ABOUT THIS ART:

This piece of original artwork comes framed and ready to hang.

In his latest body of work San Diego artist Persue provides a wide range of dreamscapes to enter and explore. Using his signature characters as guides through an illustrated, cartoon-like world, Persue also experiments with abstraction, playing with composition and use of color with childlike freedom.

“With these pieces I wanted viewers to probe the space and float aimlessly within it, falling or flying like many of my characters do. In some works, the dreamscapes are absent of characters, but I would like the audience to dive in and explore the chaos or calmness of these abstract compositions allowing the work to draw a response from deep within the viewer.” - Persue


ABOUT THE ARTIST:
In 2001, the established graphic designer, illustrator and graffiti artist “Persue” created a character that combined two of the world’s most universally adored animals: bunnies and kitties. His beloved character BunnyKitty is an undeniably cute yet spunky kitten dressed in a magical bunny suit. In an effort to put a positive spin on graffiti, which faced an onslaught of negative press in the 90’s and early 2000’s, Persue painted this character on walls the world over. What started out as a fun side project to help make aerosol art more palatable to the general public, snowballed into something else entirely.

In 2006, Persue wrote the origins of BunnyKitty, a classic story of a hero with a heart of gold, a love for adventure, and a slightly darker mischievous side. From his imagination sprung to life an entire universe where BunnyKitty must be brave, rise to the occasion and push herself to her greatest potential. Persue’s mother also played a crucial role, editing the story and writing the magical spell that equips BunnyKitty with her powers. Sadly, shortly after The Origins of BunnyKitty was written, Persue’s mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. This tragic news, along with other challenges he faced in his life at the time forced him to immediately put a halt to his dream of sharing the story they wrote together with his growing audience. It wasn’t until 2012 that he revisited the idea of sharing BunnyKitty’s story. The timing ended up being perfect, as he moved to New York City to work on the illustrations for the book which is due to drop early in fall of 2015 with 1xRUN. BunnyKitty’s journey from the countryside to the Big City reflects his own, and after nearly 8 years of waiting, Persue is finally releasing this heartwarming story to his fans, and the world.
