Exclusive Artist Series

For an artist as incredible as our coffee!

We created the Artist Series for the sole purpose of helping artists pursue their artistic journey with our support.
Patronage is the support, encouragement and financial aid bestowed upon artists.
Artisans featured in the Artist Series receive compensation for their visual creation, which is custom printed on a box containing an exceptional coffee selected from a micro-lot to reflect the artist. A limited quantity is then produced and proceeds of $10 are donated to the artist for each box sold.
Become a patron by purchasing a box of our Artist Series! But hurry, as quantities are very limited.

MORT

Visual artist - Muralist

A multidisciplinary creature, MORT’s artistic production goes far beyond the two-dimensionality of the canvas. For MORT, it is necessary to decontextualize in order to rebuild better. By combining drawing, painting and woodworking, his visual constructions fall between figuration and abstraction.

His deconstructions of the human body in uncomfortable, sometimes erotic positions, make his characters vehicles of multiple emotions. The sensitive atmosphere of MORT’s compositions is filled with torment and sweetness. His loaded compositions multiply the drapes, patterns and colors, which make his works organic objects sometimes strange but above all singular. His exploded figures are a calculated and voluntary chaos. MORT works mainly on wooden panels which he cuts to follow the outline of his drawing, allowing him to create paintings of objects.

Essentially, his works are a hybridization of elements from pop culture, renaissance art and illustration. One can also observe the influence of Japanese anime as well as American cartoons in the straightforward and assumed features of MORT. Reusing the symbolism of the martyrs alongside the logos of rock groups from the 90s, it is through these references, which are often at the extremes of each other, that MORT creates its own mythology. In its production, technique is always in the foreground. Continuously looking for new shapes and colors that will change his visual language and the maturity of his gesture.
