Introducing our artist - Miguel Antonio
Who is this artist behind the madness? Heavily influenced by punk rock and skateboarding aspects, Miguel Antonio, better known as Distort Monsters, is a street artist well recognised for his vibrant characters with striking outlines and multilinear textures. His creations are frequently narrative and introspective and his monsters serve as a symbolic depiction of his conscience.
Distort Monsters uses art as an outlet to express himself, transferring his emotions onto canvas and walls. The artist found comfort in creating these quirky monsters, calmed by the repetitive motion of painting detailed linework.
Live Art and Meet & Greet
Ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of an artwork? Watch how Distort Monsters’ creation came “alive” at our booth as he drew and experimented with various techniques!
The grand finale of Sneaker Con SEA had fans buzzing with excitement as they got up close and personal with Distort Monsters - a Meet & Greet that left them on cloud nine!
For those lucky enough to have snagged some Distort Monsters merchandise, give yourself a pat on the back - as most of them are now sold out! But fear not and stay tuned for something even more exciting to come. Sneaker Con SEA, we can't wait to see you again next year!
