Mort is an artist based in Montreal, appropriating an image not only of popular culture and fashion, but also of “underground” counter-cultures and Renaissance paintings. It seamlessly goes from Skateboarding to Punk, from Hip-Hop to Grunge, to Japanese cartoons. His works thus consist of fragments of images that combine to form abstract compositions reminiscent of the aesthetics of comics. His work can be seen as a reaction to the new way in which we consume the information and images that follow one another and overlap at a frightening pace. Working mainly with acrylic and aerosol, he also uses transfer, screen printing and woodworking.
