"This piece was created in Detroit during the two weeks leading up to my show at Inner State gallery, Entropy. The original painting is on plexiglass, painted in sign painters enamel, acrylic and spray paint. Since the ‘Thunderclap Headache’ piece from 2011 I’ve been consistently painting portrait works, either the left profile or straight on. The majority of these works are images of people from the Pacific region, mostly women who exude a strong sense of personal style and character. The main exception is when I travel I tend to try and paint someone from each place I go. Yolanda is Detroit local - we spotted her at a Red Bull House Of Art opening in Detroit's Eastern Market. After speaking with her and creating this piece I got a sense that she is a person with a story to tell and a very strong character." - Askew
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.
