Drawing on his experience on the California street art and graffiti scene, enomeks has been using photography as his more recent medium. Depicting scenes in miniature, this artist tells a story of the bigger picture. Tiny workers in hazmat suits read the levels of radiation emitted from a burning cigarette, a reflection of enomeks’ concerns as a former smoker. Stenciled Rat = Big Deal sums up his feelings towards the type of attention we give to the hype that surrounds some graffiti without truly appreciating the genre as a whole, or paying attention to the unknowns … the “sideshow spectacle” as he calls it. Cheeky messages in tiny packages.
