StolenSpace is proud to present the inaugural show from The Typograffic Circle; a collective of artists and a newly developing movement within the urban art world.
The cohesion between the artists is a desire to make work that explores the boundaries of typographic design, within the contexts of both studio work and in-situ wall painting.
Taking the placement, attitude and quest for individual style and originality from the graffiti world and mixing it with the constraints of type-making and type-setting, and accessibility and expression of the written word to create a new aesthetic and approach.
Instantly distinguishable for the precision of his lines and the vibrancy of his pallet, Gary Stranger’s sleek style has led him to become one of the most sought after artists on the scene. Hailing from the legendary MSK crew, Gary’s reputation as a typographic wizard is thoroughly deserved – each work executed with such sharp accuracy that it’s hard to believe they’re created free-hand. Truly a Titan of the Typographic.
Crisp execution combined with often enigmatic phraseology sets Pref apart as a true master of his craft. Conceptually, Pref sits head and shoulders above many of his contemporaries – consistently striving to push his medium in new directions, the overlaying of text gives his work a literal sense of depth that is rarely seen in graffiti writing. Having collaborated with Gary Stranger at StolenSpace in 2017, we’re excited to see what’s next in store for Pref.
