The Big Bang
After I stopped doing graffiti and using letters in my work, I turned my attention to the spaces within them and the geometric shapes they made from each other. From the dynamic of these cosmic spaces, I interpreted them as different lines, eclipses, circles, and rectangles. The rectangle – symbolizing humans floating inside the space without specific direction. It is chaos after the big bang. For the painting “Polychrome Rain”, the rectangles have a path and direction going upwards, and it’s from here, I began to realize and was inspired to sharpen the compositions of my other works, along with improving the techniques I used with brush painting. It took years to get very comfortable using this tiny tool that I never used too much in my graffiti career, and it was really difficult for me to shift my work from huge outdoor spaces to this much smaller surface, where every detail had such a crucial effect and spoke so loudly.
