Description


Morley is a Los Angeles-based street artist that specializes in bold, typographic posters which he wheat pastes within the urban landscape. Blending humor, hope and his unique perspective on life, Morley's aim is to act as a friendly voice amongst the cacophony of billboarded messages and corporate slogans. This voice was given a face when he began including an image of himself in each of his pieces, looking to create a more intimate relationship between the artist and the audience than many of his anonymous contemporaries could allow. In 2011, Morley's work caught the eye of Steve Lazarides whose Outsiders imprint began selling his work, describing it thusly: His sympathetic statements give the tirelessly aspirational residents a welcome reminder of what's important in life: love, simple pleasures, making the world a slightly better place and not hating on yourself too much.
Today, he continues to paste his work in any city that doesn t enforce their vandalism laws through caning. Also he made us promise to include the fact that he can hold his breath for over an hour, and that if anyone challenged him to a breath holding contest, they would totally lose, but he was probably lying about that.

Praise For…


"Morley is the antithesis of street artists in Los Angeles. Where traditional taggers obscure their name in scrawled script only readable to their own, Morley prints big messages with his large bold lettering. Where most find it cool to be cryptic, Morley shares his wit in complete sentences. Where many street artists prefer anonymity or an empowered alter-ego, Morley includes a plain drawing of his unglamorous self writing each ironic aphorism. His humor veers from self-deprecating to sly, his insight ranges from soul searching to silly."

- The Huffington Post

"Breaking the mold is exactly what street art needs today, and Morley seems to be that bit of unpretentious breath of fresh air."

- Vandalog

"Morley's piece are much more than slogans. He has something to make you think about, and he does this in a very effective and funny way"

- Claude Crommelin (from New Street Art)

"Morley has a unique gift for what he does. When it comes to artists on the streets, nearly everyone uses words, but no one uses them so well. Morley's street poetry is poignant enough to cause a person to think, and packaged short enough to be consumed in a moment. Morley is a poet of the Streets. Those are our words, not his. Morley would probably find a better way to phrase it."

- MelroseAndFairax

"Poetic and insightful, Morley’s art captures truths, hardships, and the quirkiness of the human condition."

- G. James Daichendt, Author of Stay Up! Los Angeles Street Art
