ABOUT EXHIBITION

Stolen Space is delighted to welcome back Usugrow into our front gallery, for his solo exhibition ‘Organic Lines’.

 

Japanese born artist, Usugrow, is known world-wide for his beautiful, calligraphic artistic style. In his work he very often beautifully portrays opposing elements such as delicate lines and unique lettering style, skulls and flowers, yin and yang and of course his palette of black and white.

 

He believes that this is everyday life and living proof that these opposing elements can exist together. This show explores the fluidity of Usugrow’s recognisable style, through representations of organic subjects.

‘I like the organic curves that living things have. Among them, I have been obsessed with skulls and flowers for a long time. I draw those curves with a new interpretation. I want to change the impression that many people have of them, and encourage new ways of seeing and discovering them.’ – Usugrow 2020

 

Heavily influenced by Los Angeles ‘Cholo’ style graffiti, fused with the spiritual skills of Asian calligraphy, Usugrow started drawing in 1993 by creating punk rock flyers. He soon became hugely successful as a commercial designer for album covers, fashion brands & skate companies. He has been exhibiting his art in galleries all over the world, and his black and white illustrations have become instantly recognisable.
