Tales from the Crypt 2
by Mojoko


This artwork is based on a original japanese albumen photograph, Buckwheat Macaroni eating, exhibited in the Technicolour Japan exhibition. Mojoko's inspiration comes from his viewpoint that the original photo looked like it had been dug up, or unearthed, from a Japanese vault. Infusing references from modern Japan and manga influence, the photographs were remixed to tell a different story. Inspired by the idea of all the ghosts and spirits that were released when these old photos were excavated.

About the Artist

Born in Iran, having grown up in Hong Kong and now based in Singapore, Steve Lawler is the man behind Mojoko. Mojoko was founded in 2005 as a reaction to overuse of the computer. With a background in Graphic Design from Brighton University and a 2-year scholarship at Fabrica in the new media department working on Colors Magazine, Steve was hijacked by Diesel to be part of their in-house creative team in Molvena, Northern Italy working exclusively for Diesel and its sub-Brands. From there he sought further adventure by moving to Asia to take on a more commercial role, creating websites and campaigns for many global brands under the roof of OgilvyOne Singapore. Afterwards, he took to consulting for all sorts of projects as a creative thinker, art director and designer.

Currently a creative consultant for Kult, an unconventional boutique agency in Singapore, he is involved in both commercial and experimental projects. When he’s not guest-designing magazines, conducting art workshops or silk screening, he spends his time going around and picking up obscure pieces of paper from the ground. “One man’s junk is another man’s painting”.
