HUNGRY CASTLE MAKES PUBLIC ART &
FASHION FOR PLANET EARTH
Based in Barcelona, Hungry Castle is the creative studio featuring Dave Glass and Kill Cooper that specialize in creating public art and fashion which they call Cool Shit. Their art inspires the fashion but it’s the fashion that funds their art. Therefore to purchase a Cool Shit Cap is to patron a Cool Shit Project.
Working collectively since 2011 the goal has always been to make big, playful things of cultural impact and use design thinking in a way that truly engages people. Influenced by Shepard Fairey’s prolific use of public space with the “Obey Giant” campaign, the artists combine unique 3-dimensional pieces with large-scale production a la Jeff Koons but with an added interactive ingredient to create a fully immersive experience between audience and art.
Hungry Castle sell concepts and Cool Shit to a cross section of clients and sponsors including Adidas, HP and several International Music Festivals. Hungry Castle’s work has been exhibited in New York, the UK, Spain and Miami Beach. Hungry Castle actively work to make Cool Shit that’s always playful, public, polarizing and pop.
Make Cool Shit happen.
Artist and founder of Hungry Castle, Dave (aka Danger) is known for combining public art and fashion with his unique creative vision. He loves the strange, the beautiful and creating larger than life projects. The internet is his muse. Constantly searching for new ways of thinking, Dave strives to make Cool Shit happen around the world.
Danger was born in Australia. He completed his studies at The College of Fine Arts Sydney and has a decades worth of advertising agency experience. Dave now live and works in Barcelona.
An artist who believes that one of the greatest things in life is coming up with ideas and realizing them. He likes to think big, very big. Big ideas with a twist of crazy and a generous slice of humour. Creating Cool Shit that makes an impression but most importantly is just fun.
The ‘Killa from Manilla’ wasn’t born anywhere near the Philippines. Clearly Irish, Kill has a degree in visual communications and other studio notches on his belt. Barcelona is his home but planet earth is his playground.
