Ah, its nice to have a little color talk here on the podcast. Dublin, Irelands' ⁠ACHES⁠ is a theorist of color. He combines a multitude of ideas and styles into his work, whether graffiti, murals, painting, graphic design, all into an aesthetic that is deservedly his and one of the more unique in the street genre. When you see an ACHES, you know its him.

Now on this occasion we aren't in Dublin or the UK to speak with the artist, but in Hong Kong during Basel Week 2024 and the HK Walls festival. It's always a good time to speak to an artist away from home because you understand a certain idea of perception about their work, and a great conversation usually occurs when you have a little jet lag and hard work going on at the same time. What ACHES describes here is his history and his style that he calls a "subtractive and additive color theory." That's the good stuff.
