If memory serves me correct I was hepped to the kick-ass artwork of Remz Di Maggio – aka The Art of Remz – via members of French punk band The Rebel Assholes during a 2011 European tour. French-born but living in Kinrooi, Belgium this self-taught illustrator picked up his ‘hobby’ as an escape from the boredom of school, found himself enjoying it so much he started to develop his skills and today he’s done work for bands and clubs all over the world – including US power pop musician Kurt Baker.
Heavy on the retro influences he’s admittedly a big fan of US genius artist Shag, but I’d say he definitely has carved out a niche to call his own. There are some really great pieces to be seen on his Facebook page (where you’ll also find contact info if you wanna commission something), so make sure you check him out and show him your support!
More (astounding) work:
