Remi/Rough & Steve More — A

A is an upcoming exhibition of future perspectives... The future perspectives of two very different artists who have shared ideas, time and concrete. The title 'A' is as much about a new beginning as it is a reference to the Avant garde or Abstraction of their Alternative works. The Alphabet was the starting point for both Remi/Rough and Steve More's careers and the fact they have now developed those classic icons and forms into heavily abstracted formations and broken landscapes, reiterates a new beginning.

The artists first met in the early 90’s and worked closely over the following ten years, playing a progressive role in the international graffiti art scene. Their focus on self expression and originality whilst working in the urban vernacular has had a lasting influence on their works, and each other. Since they parted ways in 2003 their work diverged but some similarities remain highly evident.

The title for the show ‘A’ holds a significant meaning for both artists: It symbolises new beginnings and heralds a coming of age. It also gives a nod to their past muse: Letter form (A being the first letter of the alphabet). It also bears light on the ‘Abstract’ world in which they convey their ‘Art’, and their ‘Avant garde’ attitude with which they produce it.

‘A’ opens on Tuesday 1 February and will run until Sunday 6 February.
