O.Two / James Carey
Born 1979, London based and Hell-bound.
The artist creates work based on the written type-form. Urgent and precise motions draw together traditional typography, a hopeless addiction to Black Sabbath, and shattered interpretations of New York graffiti in rapid, abstract gestures amongst mists of ambient colour. The canvas works are intricate, refined adaptations of teenage delinquency - they offer glimpses of a guilty rhythm; snap-shots of fractured typography, hooded themes, and veiled motives.
They are not street-art.
