Interview with the Man Behind Man Made Monsters

This Month we have the artist Stefvan from Man Made Monsters with us... here are some random questions and answers!

Schmancy (S): What is your inspiration for this show?
ManMadeMonsters (MMM): Repercussions of bad decision making, self loathing. For every women I fell in love with, may it be for 10 years or 10 seconds. Lack of sleep and great sex.

S: Name your favorite country and why - have you ever visited it?
MMM: 10 years ago I would have said Barcelona, Spain, just to skateboard.
But now I would say Tokyo, Japan. I feel like it would be visiting 10 years into the future. I have never been to either unfortunately.

S: What is your favorite creature/animal?
MMM:I don't have say a favorite, but here are couple
Killer whale with a comb over
Fruit bats

S: What do you have coming up this year you'd like us to know about?
MMM: I have been added to a wonderful festival known as Urban Craft Uprising! July 10th and 11th at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall. 305 Harrison Street
Seattle, WA 98109 (206) 684-7200. Over 100 vendors!! Big time!!! Have another show coming up at NW Throw backs, June 14th. (1205 E Pike. St. Seattle, WA 98122 (206) 402-4855) Thats gonna be super fun! After all that, my first full blown themed show at Retro fit, Aug.12th (1419 12th Avenue, Seattle - (206) 568-4663). Theme is called Endangered Species, some real and made up!! Mostly made up. But what ever doesn't sell is going to get painted over after the month is up, so it's up to people to save these species. Around 5 species are gonna be there and about 10 to 20 of each species. All one of a kind!! Also spreading the word of some of the coolest artist I know on STOKKUR.NET. Other than that I will be lurking around waiting for my moment to have a run at world domination. Muahahahaha!!

S: Are you a dog or cat person?
MMM: As long as they are friendly and like to chill, they both cool with me. None of this acting like I don't exist unless I have food. That shit is not cool!!

Can't wait to see everyone at the show opening- This Friday May 14 from 6-9pm!!
