Discover a new artwork made by HOMEBOY LDJ, titled “Homecastle”, that reveals the artist’s enormous skills and infinite passion for making letters. All kind of letters. From simple and legible letters to the super complex wild style, HOMEBOY LDJ can create an entire universe using only lettering and his distinct elements (the eyes of the character, stairs, and different patterns & textures)
In total contrast with the digital world, HOMEBOY LDJ continues to perfect his hand drawing and painting skills by exercising almost daily and constantly creating new artworks. HOMEBOY LDJ can easily apply colours and volume to any surface, from graffiti walls to canvas and paper.
You will receive a unique and original drawing made by HOMEBOY LDJ back in 2017 using markers on paper, 42 x 29,5 cm. It is framed by the artist behind glass, enclosed in a simple wooden border, painted white, measuring 53 x 37,5 x 1,3 cm.
One of the most important things for graffiti is writing your name in a cool way and designing the letters in a particular style. For a long time, the graffiti styles evolved parallel with typefaces, typography, calligraphy, comics and cartoons.
One of the local artists took this process of making the letters on completely other levels, and he didn‘t stop writing only his name, but many times he draws the entire alphabet. We don‘t know exactly when HOMEBOY LDJ started drawing this series of alphabets, but certainly, we can see that he has a lot of style and skills. Each artwork follows a theme. Each letter has a distinct shape, texture, style, and colour representing different concepts, zooming into the micro or the artist’s macro imaginative universe.
