"Recently my work has been expanding in all directions. My work as a vandal has been mutating into a purer form of what I call graffiti vandalism, my artwork is becoming more experimental and my digital work is breaking new grounds.
Skulls are the universal image for rebellion, Pirate flags use them as the ultimate offense, cannibals decorate their camps with them, the skull represents how I live my life.
The single stroke skull came out of my desire to tag faster. As a young tagger I became fascinated with the practicality of tagging different designs and shapes. I wanted to engineer a design that was attractive both from an artistic stand point but also from the idea of efficiency.
The skull is how I condemn surfaces, structures, how I condemn the public space. I've been using the skull for the past 12 years. Using it as my brand. I've painted it around the world and in cyberspace.
These prints are beautiful. They are hand printed editions of my most carefully used tag. The colors are stark and minimal. I wanted to resemble the purity of zen calligraphic artwork. Simple and bold. " - Katsu
