Artist’s Statement

TYPOE’s practice employs a consistent push-pull between the dark recesses of the urban underground and the shimmering veneers of celebrity. Tracing the deep indentations of academic art history into the seemingly bulletproof, steely surfaces of street art, TYPOE illustrates a conflicted visual landscape riddled with mundane objects forcibly jammed into precarious anthropomorphic scenarios. Clandestinely donning a bandit’s bandana, using razor-edged satire as his proverbial pistol, TYPOE’s work subtly nods to the established contemporary art canon, held hostage in a dizzying abyss of hermetic hypocrisy, excessive lifestyles and the melancholy of lost time.
