Scrawl, Dirty Graphics and Strange Characters

Scrawl, Dirty Graphics and Strange Characters The first survey of a group of artists who have come up from the streets, chopped the computer down to size and reconfigured the hand-made. Inhabiting a gray area somewhere between art, design and illegality these artists and writers operate outside the colleges and galleries of the art establishment. Their starting point was traditional graffiti with its notions of rebellion, outsider identity and urban tribalism. Scrawl – Dirty Graphics and Strange Characters is public art 21st century style. Using spray cans, brushes, stencils, Xerox machines, collage, computers, video and film they create intense images that are the visual equivalent of contemporary music's poly-rhythmic complexity.
