Artist reimagines grime stars as Pokémon cards
Brighton-based photographer Ben Gore has released a peek of his ‘Grimemon’ series including Skepta, JME, Wiley and more
We already know JME is kind of Poké-obsessed – he’s featured on the official Pokémon YouTube channel talking about his love for the adored avatars, and zoomed around London to swap shiny Charizards for copies of his debut LP, Integrity>.
Possibly riffing on this fact, Brighton-based photographer and artist Ben Gore has created a series of grime acts reimagined as Pokémon cards. The eight cards revealed so far feature Big Narstie as Snorlax, Tempa T as Geodude, Wiley as Meowth, Ghetts as Abra, Section Boyz as Exeggcute, Newham Generals as a duo version of Dugtrio, and man of the moment, Skepta, as Hitmonchan. Gore has promised a full series of twenty cards to be released next month.
