I am an avid fan of this street artist that has become an shining star in the art world. He has exhibited all over the world. Ever since I spotted his work in Soho a few years back I have craved and coveted his work. His manta is so modern and pure. 

In vibrant colors, Theodore mixes and matches key elements of art and fashion, plastering his power clashing hybrids around the city streets. “Fashion allows people to become art, ” Theodore told Style Caster. “It’s the only time in our society that’s truly accepted for you to be a form of art. The average person on the street is trying to convey an image. That image could be an identity, he or she could be building himself as a painting: it might be the most super-glossed up glam queen, or they could be portraying this stupendous image of Madonna.” via Huff Post
