Out of the Box Saturday

It's all about me discovering something that is different. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. I'll cover something sing | songy one week, and artsy | fartsy the next.

This next artist is freaking cool. I wish I owned a mask, or two, or twelve.

AJ Fosik is from Detroit, Michigan. In 2003, he received a BFA in Illustration from Parsons School of Design in New York City. He is currently based in Oregon.

Fosik’s work has been exhibited in galleries across the country including New York, Philadelphia, Miami and San Francisco. He has been featured in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, The Brooklyn Rail and Tokion. In 2011, Fosik was commissioned by Mastodon to create artwork for the cover of their album, The Hunter. The band’s music video featured the artist working in his studio on the piece.

Artwork can be found here.

Check out more of his masks here.

His art is very unique! I think that it's cool the band featured him making the piece in their video!

Those masks are sure colorful. I bet they would sell well at Mardi Gra.
