Maverick acts of graffiti and street art cover cities’ landscapes randomly against the backdrop of predefined, approved architecture. Random and uncontrolled aspects are juxtaposed with order and formality revealing a story of a polarised world – one where dictatorship meets free expression.
This blend of controlled and uncontrolled is translated as an intuitive response represented on canvas and demonstrates the artist’s unique eye in the discerning art from atypical sources.

- – This work explores a darker perspective on transformation in the Urban Collection. It brings together diverse elements from a moodily atmospheric bridge in London, barely seen by passers-by yet a retreat for its own subculture. Its dangerous vibe becomes more pronounced as day transforms to night but the artist’s hallmark use of neon colours remind us of the potential for change.
