Kaboom!

Luster Kaboom, that is, aka David Quan. He is a comic book artist from Phoenix who has now moved back to New York, where he went to art school, in the hopes of fulfilling his dream of making comics. You can read more about him here.

The blue ooze surrounding this El Mac mural, below, that I wrote about a few weeks ago, is also by Luster Kaboom. There used to be a Lalo Cota next door but it’s been removed.

He won the Phoenix New TimesBest Mural of 2011 for this.

  1. This artist seems to have the knack of creating funny cartoon characters. Fine series.

  2. Just amazing stuff! I have to wonder if all of these murals that are so creative and well done have any effect, good or bad, on all of the graffiti that used to be around. Did the old graffiti producers get humbled by these and quit, or have they been stimulated?

    • Hmmm, I’m not sure. I have to say, I don’t see much of the junky graffiti but I don’t know if I’m tuning it out or if it’s really gone. Interesting question, you’d think they’d be humbled by all these good ones.

  3. These are absolutely fantastic Candace!

  4. Love the colors on these… not big on comic art, but really like the vivid green, yellows and pinkish color…

  5. Too cool! I love these type of murals. As opposed to tags, commissioned graffiti art really improves the neighborhood.
