I ARE UGLY

I ARE UGLY is a Munich based design-freak who loves to demonstrate his passion for street art and to express his own character by using markers and cans on wood, concrete or canvas.Although the artist's roots are unquestionably to be found in skateboarding and graffiti writing, over the years (also influenced by his studies of communication design) he has developed his own, distinctive style and graphic approach.

I ARE UGLY is best known for his expressive, comic style characters that are distinguished by exact outlines and clear surfaces. A large amount of his inspiration comes from "his guiding principle" "WE IS ALL UGLY". Hereby he is not referring to the superficial, optical ugliness of human beings but far more to the inner defectiveness that is to be found in each and every one of us.

His humorous and not seldom mischievous figures are guaranteed to bring a grin to the face of those who observe his creations. No matter how barbaric and evil I ARE UGLY's characters might seem, they always reflect something lovable. For his co-op with Pyromaniac I ARE UGLY has created a unique formation of hand-characters ultimately inspired by latino gangs that are mainly found along the west coast of the USA ... hence the title of his project "Pyro-Manos".
