Not only is Askew One recognised globally for his ferocious, explosive graffiti aesthetic, he also displays an equally as daring and dramatic approach in the studio. His works demonstrate a curiosity about the boundaries of the art making process, the flexibility of his media, and the potential of the tools he uses to create his paintings. Yet, despite his expressive strokes and theatrical composition, there is a precious tension in his works that comes from tempering that ferocity with restraint – a skill reserved only for the most well-practised artists.
Askew One has over 20 years experience in self-taught graphic design, illustration, photography, publishing, directing and editing music videos and moving images. He has exhibited and appeared as a keynote speaker internationally.
