Hypersub x Dalek

The Space Monkey mothership has landed.

We're proud to announce the first NFT subscription by esteemed artist, Dalek. Subscribe to SPACEMONKEYS now on Hypersub.

James Marshall, better known as Dalek, is an American painter, photographer, muralist, and illustrator, best recognized for his Space Monkey character. His work is an expression shaped by skateboarding, graffiti art, and punk rock.

The Space Monkey, first drawn on a Connecticut wall in 1995, encapsulated the contemporary vibe of Japanese pop culture, punk, street art and cartoons. For Marshall, this character represents a human being lost in an ever-expanding sea of technological sprawl and mind-numbing convenience. Gradually the Space Monkey had evolved into Marshall's alter ego, a vehicle for communicating emotions, ideas, and concerns.

Over the years, Dalek has continually developed his creations. In the early stages his work was encouraged and supported by Shepard Fairey, eventually leading to an apprenticeship with the renowned Japanese painter Takashi Murakami. He went on to be featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and Juxtapoz, along with producing commissioned work for Nike, Hurley, American Express, Microsoft, and Instagram.

Hypersub is now thrilled to announce the opportunity to deliver Dalek's work through his SPACEMONKEYS subscription.
