Mr. Controversial's new collection is very much an evolution on the work that has been successful to date. To stay true to his roots, this new collection maintains the core characteristics of a Mr. Controversial artwork. The beautiful, glamorous, empowered women combined with the witty, sarcastic captions.
He has introduced new pulp imagery created from scratch, as well as photography of icons; from Hollywood actress to civil rights protagonists. A new san serif font, new mediums, new monochrome colour scheme, as well as a new presentation in the framing style. All new elements but the same Mr. Controversial twist - beautiful vintage aesthetic with witty, relatable and current captions that tell an enticing story.
