ABOUT THIS ART:

This piece of original artwork is framed in a 1 Inch White Wood Frame with archival backing and ready to hang hardware.


"Entropy" further refines Askew's unique method of portraiture where the medium and portrait's subject become a metaphor for a much bigger conversation. The portrait is the closed-system device used to represent the formation of immense entities of barely contained energy that have reached an entropic state, only moments from encountering a cataclysmic event. It is a discussion about formation, existence and more specifically the fragility of all things - our incessant quest for balance and harmony in any society, when all things eventually deteriorate or revert to a state of chaos.

"Detroit started this whole train of thought during my first visit in 2009. I think the metaphor of Entropy is throughout the world but extends to Detroit as well. The Entropy in Detroit's case was human expanse and industry. This work is optimistic though, like Detroit. It's about new beginnings." – ASKEW ONE

This piece of original artwork comes signed by Askew and includes an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from Inner State Gallery.

ABOUT Askew One:
Askew is a multi-disciplinary artist mostly renowned for his graffiti art paintings. Widely regarded as one of the New Zealand graffiti scene’s driving forces, he has managed to remain at the forefront of the movement (both in New Zealand and throughout the world) whilst working tirelessly behind the scenes in a diverse array of projects.

Askew’s indoor canvas works are influenced by double exposure photography, bold illustrative lines reflective of comic books and the graphic power of the letter. This is also seen in his public mural works in which his attraction to ‘bigger is better’ is highly precedent.

With an abundance of achievements and experiences almost 20 years in the graffiti scene which include a guest artist invite to Primary Flight - Art Basel Miami and taking out two consecutive ‘Write 4 Gold’ world titles as part of TMD crew (who remain undefeated), Askew is also versed in graphic design, illustration, photography, publishing, music and moving image. A self-taught, self-sufficient one-man army with no formal art qualifications behind him, Askew is an artist schooled by life itself.
