Relationship of forces
EXLD, CHILL and BATO, three artist who started their artistic ventures through putting up their names in dilapidated walls, run- down buildings to any surface that they deemed fit of their pursuit. They continued to traverse on this artform yet continuously exploring other platforms outside of the boundaries of spray paint and public spaces.
Ephemerality comes hand in hand with graffiti, and spray paint was always tied up with vandalism and such. EXLD’s works exhibited graffiti’s characteristic of rebellious intent by challenging the conventional artform through the exploration of the essence of impermanence and materials. Just fragments of an image can be seen in his pieces which escapes from the traditional visual norms and representation.
