Chicago artist POSE’s layered paintings traditionally evoke the world of stickers, skate graphics, street signage, punk rock flyers, cartoons and comic books he grew up on. All are reimagined through dissection, digitization and reconstitution, collectively immortalizing post-industrial moments for the digital age.

POSE debuts his latest body of work, DECONSTRUCTED, exclusively for BEYOND THE STREETS on NTWRK. Here he pulls layers of his signature collages apart, centering on individual images both familiar and twisted. The narrative is new yet nostalgic, as playful or purposeful as you want it to be. Dig for the social commentary or just enjoy the eye-popping aesthetic. Either way, it’s fun.
