INFORMATION

This exhibition explores illustration as a form of communication. Symbols and icons are the words the artist’s uses to convey emotion this exploration of language as a visual metaphor traces a line between the surreal and the literal. Styles and techniques are revised, explored and reinterpreted to showcase a body of work that emerges from an urban lifestyle, a reaction to context, the need to create. Vectorish styles, bold blocks of solid colour, dripped paint build the vocabulary of an artist inspired by nature. This work is the combination of four years of wondering through the streets, picking up wood panels and transforming them as canvas and into an illustration journey. Compositions, hidden space, layout, visually invite us to cross the bridge of words to the place where things don’t have a name and we can finally see with new fresh eyes the fine line that divides aesthetics and utility.
