Facebook Social Cigarettes. Because You Crave It. By 2wenty.

Los Angeles based artist 2wenty is having quite a year.  His “Facebook Social Cigarettes” street art went viral in early 2011 and he has been catapulted onto the world stage as one of the hottest street artists on the scene!  Aside from his art, not much is known about the reclusive artist – until now!  Thanks to the magic of Facebook, 2wenty and I played a real life version of 20 questions!

 According2g: Where did the name 2wenty come from?

 2wenty: When I was 20 years old,  I use to ride street bikes with these older guys and they started calling me 20. It’s the only nickname I’ve ever had that wasn’t a spin off of my own name. I figured society sees people as numbers anyhow, so I’m picking my own.

A2G: How long have you been doing street art?

2wenty: I started right before 2011. Pretty crazy considering what has happened thus far. I have been dubbed “the golden child of LA street art” by a lot of people.

A2G: Who are your heroes / influences?

2wenty: I like what a lot of artists are doing but the only artist I’ve really looked up to has been LA’s Dog Byte. He is one of the few artists that was doing what I wanted to do in the terms of how he was choosing his spots, and I liked that he would only put out one-off stencils instead of slamming the street with the same thing over and over again. Not to mention he is a super nice guy and he really cares about the scene.  I’ve started paying close attention to C215’s work.  His stencil work is some of the best around.  I don’t really have any specific influences other than looking at street art which I’m sure has some subconscious effect. I even try to guard myself sometimes because I want to develop my own style.

Facebook - Social Cigarettes.

I was recently hooked up with something so cool, I had to share it!  Artist 2wenty’s genius “Facebook – Social Cigarettes” pack.  This is some of the most genius social commentary I’ve seen in years and you know I get around, so I’d like to think I know what I am talking about.  Thanks again, not only for the brilliance, but for giving me something to smile about, long after my status update no longer reflects what I am doing.  Much obliged!

Don’t lie, you know you crave it even when you know how bad it is for you.  We all crave it.  There’s no patch or nicotine flavored gum for this addiction, but there is an on/off switch.

Facebook - Social Cigarettes by Twenty

I’m not even kidding that when I first saw this image by Twenty on line, I have been dying to see it in person.  Yesterday was the day!  I arrived in Los Angeles and immediately hit the town in search of great art, great weather and great food.  Within minutes, I was 3 for 3! 

This image is by street artist Twenty.  Sadly, I caught this wheat-paste on its way out, but before it got entirely destroyed, I was able to preserve it in a photo.  “Facebook – Social Cigarettes.  Because you crave it.”  So genius, I can’t even take it!  Thanks for the smiles (and the truth), Twenty.  Seeing this in person was worth the wait!
