PAINTING & DRAWING
Karel Moyer was born in 1986 in Miami, FL.At age 7 he moved to New Jersey where he later received an AA in Education before serving 4 years in the US Navy. While growing up in NJ, he developed a strong interest in the street art as well as the contemporary galleries and museums in New York and Philadelphia, and he works in a style inspired by these urban genres.
His work is multimedia, 2-D, and displays vibrant colors and bold line work. Inspired by Situationist philosophy, his work deals with the exploitation of the working class in capitalist societies. He juxtaposes this serious subject matter with cartoon-like imagery, creating an awkward tension for the viewer. Karel creates and borrows symbols to develop an artistic language to portray social injustice in his own unique style.
