Unique work

'City Slicker'  is an original artwork from a collaboration between MK Semos and Hugo García Urrutia.  Working primarily in recycled substrates and materials, Hugo Garcia Urrutia and MK Semos do what they do best, unifying image and form along with celebrating world capitals, in their current, and ongoing series, Wooden Postcards. The photographic artwork created by Semos and Garcia Urrutia in this collaborative style is a visual interpretation of an urban landscape, full of nostalgia, decay and charm, from New York City, London, Paris, and other cities around the globe, as places of inner experience as well as urban sprawl. Like a web slowly forming, these special hubs of the world act as melting pots, cradling vast amounts of cultures and ideas; Live organisms that become cultural icons themselves.

The imagery is initially created by Semos, who utilizes a manual, very basic Holga lm camera, allowing her to create and manufacture intuitive collages of composition inside the camera by overlapping frames and double-exposing the lm. Later, after processing the lm, “story boards” are chosen from her lengthy narrative of images, signs, pop-color, and surprise code. Her cross-processing technique gives colors maximum saturation. In 2011, this collaborative team earned and completed an artist in residency with the luxe Fairmont Hotel chain, where they produced artwork in-house and lived in a penthouse upstairs, in the Fairmont’s downtown Dallas location. Later that same year, they moved to London. They now divide their time between the UK and the States.
