At last night’s free art bash at Mass College of Art, many amazing artists from the New England area and beyond decorated the walls of the Godine Family gallery. Pieces came in from all around the world including cities like Seattle, New York and Tokyo. While the works of artists like Noir, Lazar, and Alphabet Soup stood out, the most impressive volume of art was created by Monster Decay.

At first we thought that Monster Decay was a collective, because of the number of pieces and the versatility of pieces which included buttons, t shirts, paintings, screen prints, stickers and more. We quickly found out that Monster Decay was the work of one very talented (and obviously very busy) man.

Monster Decay is an artist from Pawtucket, Rhode Island. His work consists of monsters, zombies and other dark but often comical subject matters in a predominantly illustrative style. Monster Decay’s colors are bright and have a very graphic quality to their use. Neon greens and hot pinks are often used as the skin of creepy monster and oozing blood respectively. In addition to his paintings, Monster Decay is also a prolific toy customizer, street artist and graffiti artist.
