The Lovely Art of L'amour Supreme!!!

L'amour Supreme is an amazing artist out of NYC who I encountered on Skullbrain as he started posting pictures of his Kaiju-related artwork. Because he using plexiglass as a medium, painting on both sides, his artwork has a 3-D quality that is unbelievable. Last month, Lamour was featured in a cool article in Razor Apple which is a blog about New York City. Here's an excerpt:

Lamour: Toys have always been a big influence but the last couple of years, it’s strictly been Japanese vinyl toys known as Kaiju. Everything from the old school kaiju like Godzilla to the new school kaiju like RealxHead and Gargamel. A store that specializes in Kaiju in SF called Super 7 has a message board that all types of kaiju lovers can sink their teeth into. I also have been trying to tattoo lately. I bought a kit on ebay, ha ha. My friend Seth who owns Funhouse Tattoos in San Diego has been giving me some pointers over the phone and email. He also said that I should never mention his name if anyone asks where I learned the trade. No one out here wants to apprentice me part time because every shop I go to says that I can’t do this thing part time, that it’s a lifestyle. I can definitely see that. So right now it’s just a hobby messing around on fake skin. Maybe someday.

RA: What are you working on these days?

Lamour: I’m so busy that I don’t know where to begin. I’ve got an upcoming Super 7 Art show in the spring that I’m working on. About a dozen collaborations with other artists. Some paintings to do for Mishka clothing label in their new retail space. I also have a limited edition print, shirt and 2 figure set coming out with the Japanese toy company Real X Head. The prints going to be plexi. 1 color, probably black outline on the front. I will then airbrush the colors on the back. Only 20 sets available. I’m really psyched about this as I’ve been a fan of RxH a while now.

Shit, sign me up for any of your artwork, collaborations. I'd love to see L'amour's art get the 3D toy treatment too...
