POST-GRAFFITI PACIFIC Curated by Olivia Laita

1

Post-Graffiti Pacific features the multidisciplinary work of Auckland-based artists Askew One, Benjamin Work, Berst, Elliot Francis Stewart, Gary Silipa, Misery and Route52. As leaders of this new movement, they seek, in part, to organise the way we talk about urban contemporary art. As urban contemporary artists have evolved to straddle the divide between public and studio practice, terms like ‘graffiti’ and ‘street art’ have become insufficient to describe the activities and motivations of today’s urban artists. ‘Post-Graffiti’ is now a recognised term, used to describe the work of artists whose backgrounds in graffiti inform their professional artistic practice.

In embracing the concept of Post-Graffiti, and to further crystalise their roles in and relationships to the new urban contemporary art movement, the seven Post-Graffiti Pacific artists also use their work to emphasise their cultural backgrounds as New Zealanders. Through Post-Graffiti Pacific, they intend to platform themselves as representatives of Post-Graffiti artists who hail from the greater Pacific region.

Exhibition Opening – Thursday 16 July, 6-9pm

AGENDA EMERGE | CASE IN POINT – SHEPARD FAIREY


If you pinpoint the intersection where street art, pop culture, skate, punk rock, hip hop, DIY culture and politics converge, you will find Shepard Fairey. His ubiquitous art and iconography has become virtually unavoidable. He represents everything that Agenda Emerge intends to achieve and his Emerge lecture was a highlight of the conference.

BATES | “Style In Progress” @ Partisan Gallery in Soest, Germany

Bates ''Style In Progress'' from Partisan Creative Corner on Vimeo.

Bates began writing graffiti in his early teens and despite his tender age soon became one of the most prolific artists within Copenhagen’s budding hip-hop scene of the mid 1980-ties. Already in 1989 he was considered among the leading elite of European graffiti artists, including names such as Loomit from Germany, Mode 2 and Bando from Paris, Delta and Shoe from Amsterdam.
With the internationalization of the European graffiti of the early 1990-ties the rumor of Bates stylistic elegance spread even further and he soon became of the most sought after artists for the big venues around the continent and overseas. He has been invited to paint in more than 30 countries, on all five continents. In 1998 he was the second artist to be featured in On the Run’s biographical series on international graffiti writers. In his graffiti art Bates combines a traditionalist New York feeling for style, with an emphasis on a logic flow of letters, dynamic and swinging rhythms of bars and arrows, with a European sense of technique, of sharp lines, with a graphic verve and an near flawless can control.
