LAPIZ is a self-taught artist working on canvases and walls. His ever-evolving stencil work seeks to disrupt unwitting viewers from everyday life’s pseudo-soothing normalcy. While his work is socially critical, he believes that jarring realizations rendered beautifully benefit society. Anger, sadness, or disbelief are the natural inputs that precede action, organization, acts of hope — they are the byproducts of critical thought. LAPIZ creates work that simultaneously exposes the injustices of our world and the development of his own creative self. Its vivid colors scream from between the stencils’ neat lines, sometimes breaking their bounds in an effort to promote truth and provoke dialogue.
