Post-Graffiti Pacific, which launches at aMBUSH Gallery, Central Park, Chippendale on Thursday 16 July from 6-9pm, seeks, 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.

For one night only, one of New Zealand’s most prolific graffiti artists, Askew will be showing new works in an exhibition entitled Exodus at Goodspace Gallery in Syndey. This show is a continuation of the artists’ last four bodies of work (Entropy, The Evolving Face, Diaspora and Oceanic), the title ‘Exodus’ refers to the perpetual migration of people within the greater Pacific region.

The spray talents of Ewok and Askew came together to devise letters from the rough waters and waves of the sea. Amazing shading to render letters on both pieces.

Askew’s new pieces have gone over to the dark side, like something out of Lord of the Rings or a scary Halloween movie!

We haven’t seen many people paint like this ever and that’s why Askew is ahead of the class. This new wall was painted in Shoreditch, London while in town for his exhibition “Oceanic” at Rex Romae Gallery.
