WORKHOUSE x MARCEL MUTT Limited Edition 2022 "Peacekeeper" Embossed Brass Knuckle encased in clear resin confined to 100 sets in total.
Marcel Mutt is an anonymous French-based graffiti artist, sculptor, political activist and video director. His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humor with graffiti executed stenciling and sculptural techniques. Marcel's works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls and bridges throughout the world. Mutt’s creative grew out of the Paris underground which involved collaborations between punk artists and street musicians. His first known sculptural project was planted in 1997. It appeared within the French Right Bank on a narrow cobblestone street depicting an eight foot tall Fountain made of birch-faced ply and cast jesmonite. The work took a classic museum statue and twisted it into a sarcastically grim anti-consumer commentary. This sparked a passionate debate and divided Parisian’s as to whether it was a simple case of vandalism or a piece of artistic commentary. In this work, Mutt engaged in a direct dialogue with art history through appropriation, creating a new thought for an ordinary article of life. His sardonic take on historical myth has spawned countless imitators upon the urban landscape. Since the late Nineties, these controversial works, created in secret, continue to provide cunning commentary on the world of art, consumerism and celebrity.
