SOME BORING STORY
"I grew up with Universal Monsters, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, George Romero, Beavis and Butt-head, TMNT, Cat-Dog and punk rock, yeah... a bunch of cartoons, films and music.
Painting, reading and playing music have been some of my favorite hobbies since forever, when I was a kid I found out about people like Charles Manson, Aleister Crowley, the Misfits and Anton LaVey and as time passed all those things created a bomb of imagery and contrasts that soon reflected in my work."
That is what Kachenstein is, a mix of all monsters, zombies, creepiness fun and punk. I've always tried to reflect bits and pieces of what I am into work, you can see the Frankenstein monster having lunch or a punk zombie just craving for flesh; it's fun to see monsters and spooky creatures contrasted by little fun details in the artwork.
Wearing a shirt, sticking a sticker on your music gear or putting a button or a patch on your leather jacket expresses what you are, what you like and what you think, just like a tattoo does, that's what I do and I find it amazing when people understand what I am trying to do and wear some of my stuff, it's like a sync.
Long story short, my love for arts, horror, the occult and cartoons took me this way to do what I have the most fun with... give the living dead a twist of fun.
I hope you enjoy Kachenstein's products and get to know why they look the way they do and where they come from, it's always been really important for me.
