The Alec Monopoly Miami Collection
Alec Monopoly Art
The Alec Monopoly Miami collection is a one of a kind, must-see art experience. Celebrity street artist Alec Monopoly is known for his striking, graffiti-style art that serves as a tongue-in-cheek interpretation of capitalism and luxury. Alec Monopoly paintings often feature contemporary characters such as Uncle Pennybags and Richie Rich in everyday situations.
Exhibiting playful scenarios juxtaposed against today’s “flex culture”, Alec Monopoly art is at the forefront of celebrity and popular art culture. In fact, many of Monopoly’s most well-known pieces incorporate or pay homage to well-known luxury brands such as Luis Vuitton and Hermes.
While most of Alec Monopoly’s collection in Miami features bright and neon-colored paintings, there are several pieces that have a more muted style. Staying true to his signature use of the above-mentioned characters, some of Monopoly’s newer works of art are reminiscent of vintage cartoons and drawings with a color palette that lends a nostalgic feel to modern themes.
