NOTES TO EDITORS:
ABOUT ALEC MONOPOLY
Originally from New York City, Alec Monopoly is a global sensation. He has established himself as one of the foremost artists of the graffiti genre. Every one of his original artworks exhibits a light-hearted approach, rather than the typical street art ethos, differentiating him from his contemporaries. Taking the art world by storm, Alec portrays wealth and success through his cast of familiar characters.
His long gold chains are difficult to miss, and his top hat mirrors the mustached Monopoly man that he’s become commonly associated with. The mask that hides his face became another signature piece, and what started as an attempt at hidden identity became an integral part of his image for today’s youths to significant art collectors.
