ABOUT THIS ART:

Denial is one of the most common defense mechanisms that we all use, pretending that an uncomfortable thing did not happen.

Every day as a society we are bombarded with visual messages telling you what to do, what to eat, how to dress, how to be, etc etc. Denial is challenging you to Wash Your Brains.

Denial’s artwork and street art challenges us as a viewer and as a society to take a step back and take a look at ourselves. Artists are silently trying to make them be heard through their works. Using visually interesting techniques, pleasing colors and well thought out plays-on–words or slogans, Denial makes his point heard or seen for that matter.

As with all of Denial's work, Wash Your Brains showcases a great use of techniques. Denial uses stencils and aerosol paint in layers to build a visually interesting artwork. Denial also isn’t afraid to “rough up” his work. By using different sanding techniques he adds another layer to the images. Wash Your Brains is a great addition to any art collection.

In 2000 he adopted the moniker ‘DENIAL’ as a means of poking fun at advertising, politics and media messages that contemporary society is often ‘in denial’ about. Since then he has maintained an ongoing global street-campaign of over 500, 000 stickers, placards and murals, using the alpha-numeric characters ‘D3N!@L’. Intended as a conceptual means of marketing absurdism, DENIAL also challenges traditional notions of graffiti and public art through his bold and often satirical visual subversions.

In 2012 DENIAL started ‘Free 4 All Walls’ which is the largest public art project of its kind in South West Ontario. Bringing artists from around the world to beautify and re-invigorate public walls around Windsor, the government funded program has been a huge success in supporting the local community and promoting the value of street-art in contemporary society. Invited artists who have painted murals include: Nychos (Austria), Bask (USA), Omen(Canada), Ben Frost (Australia), Nosego(USA), Persue (USA), Rime (USA), Above (USA), Elicser (Canada), High 5 (Canada), Nekoes (USA), Labrona (Canada), Gaia (USA), Kwest (Canada), Spud (Canada), Earthcrusher (Canada) , Czr Prz (USA), Chou (Canada), Uber5000 (Canada) and XRAY (Canada). The project intends to continue well into 2014.
