►BANGKOK SHAMELESS: ARTIST STATMENT
Making art gives us creative freedom with no boundaries to express ourselves the way we like. Bangkok Shameless puts forth artwork varying from mix-media works to digital prints of 4 Graffiti writers: Matt Script, Cider, Coz and Flore. This exhibition breaks away from their traditional Graffiti-based styles, introducing their own unique flavors and techniques in order to express how they perceive the environment around them.
Matt is a freelance typographer and artist from London. He studied and Chelsea Art College and The London College of Printing before embarking on a career in various art departments for film and television. His work is inspired by a fascination with letters from medieval manuscripts to modern day graffiti combined with a love for dirty run down urban decay.
Bangkok based Illustrator and painter. He takes everyday objects and street scenes and abstracts and merges them in a unique illustrative style, which varies from illustrations to mix media paintings.
A painter who simply want to express himself on canvas, abstract-art is his solution in order to get through his problems in life. Passion becomes life, he tries to develop his skill to the next level of himself. Flore is also fascinated in drawing letters. He put himself into a position that he has to focus and dedicate his soul into it. Another passion of Flore is tattooing, it is his way of leaving something behind. His motto is “do what you got to do and make it wild as possible”.
