Phil Ashcroft’s specific form of gestural, emotive abstraction combines flattened out 1980s style art deco and graffiti influences with references to American abstraction which often threaten to overwhelm the upper sections of his canvases.
Born 1979, London based. James Carey, also known as O.Two, creates work based on abstractions of the written type-form. Working initially with spray-paint on large scale murals, he has built a working process that when applied to canvas, lures the viewer into mists of dark, ambient colour illuminated by bold, abstract gestures.
One of the most active “wild style” artists, a graffiti writer, illustrator and multidisciplinary creator, Alberto de Blobs includes multiple art historical references in his work. Ever since the 1990s, Blobs has been building up a name for himself in the graffiti scene, as well as finding a spot on the panorama of contemporary art.
