Troy Lovegates may be better known by the more anonymous name of “Other.” The artist stands as one of several prominent printmakers-turned-street artists such his more well-known contemporary Swoon as they and others merge techniques from both medias to execute unique stylistic and compositional changes that make their work prominent and recognizable. Lovegates does mural projects as well as prints and paintings that are more commonly displayed and sold in galleries. Aside from his trademark out-of-proportion figures, the artist’s work can be classified by the intricate and sometimes psychedelic mutations that his figures exhibit. Many of these have different objects or extra limbs sprouting from their guts or heads, reminding the viewer of their own feelings of personal insecurity in solitude as well as in social situations as his multi-figure pieces reveal.
