Mysterious Al is a street-artist from London
'Sweet Release' continues his exploration of tribal masks. Painting made from simple shapes but showing character, energy, and emotion in wild contemporary colors.
“Ancient witch-doctor mask are thousands of years old, and their expressions look really funny to me. I like to try and give my paintings similar character in the simplest way possible. It’s amazing how slight changes in the position of the eyes and mouths can really give a piece of it’s own.”
“Sweet Release celebrates the sanction and solitude I get from painting. A period of almost hypnotic reflection and self-discovery, but then overlaying that is mad chaotic energy and power and lust and excitement…all leading up to a sweet release."
