Who is Kyle Mosher?

Kyle Mosher also known as I'm not a crook is a Canadian born Boston based artist and designer known for his collage and cut-paper style. His enigmatic artwork combines lyrical epigrams from famous musicians most often in the hip-hop genre. His distinctive collage and cut-paper style is executed by combining found imagery with digital as well as more traditional fine art and print making techniques. His work has been featured in streets, galleries and editorials both domestically and internationally. He often goes by the pseudonym, “i'm not a crook,” which, ironically aside from being a famous political and lyrical reference is a response to critics who say he steals his images and lyrics.

The ideas and style for Mosher's work were conceived from studying and observing modern artists like Cézanne, Picasso, and Rauschenberg. Fellow artists have noted that his style is somewhat similar to more contemporary Brazilian artist Eduardo Recife also known as Misprinted Type. He studied and attainted his B.F.A at the New Hampshire Institute of Art under his mentor and New York based illustrator, Lynn Pauley. Mosher has gone on record to state that he is more inspired by “the hustle of emerging musicians” then by other contemporary visual artists often jokingly admitting he missed his true calling of being a musician and performer. Before becoming enthralled with art and design Mosher was a competitive athlete who was plagued by injuries before leaving college and transferring to an art school. He played hockey and attended Nashua High School in Nashua, NH.
