Gary Stranger has quickly become one of the big names in the UK street art and graffiti scene. His precision and workmanship stands him aside. Focusing chiefly on typography, his type is always stunningly executed, resulting in imagery that’s almost impossible to believe it’s created free-hand. His use of bold colours and sharp edges, both on walls and in the gallery space, set him aside as one of the most exciting graffiti artists out there and we are excited to be featuring his new work at Moniker Art Fair.
In this new body of work, Gary focuses on the ambiguous nature of words. All together the pieces have one distinctive theme, but separately they have multiple meanings. ‘Ecstasy’, ‘Fantasy’, ‘Euphoria’ all have an underlying suggestive tone, something which speaks of the continuing taboo of sex in our society. We are all aware its there, and yet it is often only alluded to, never fully discussed.
