About the Artwork: This print is part of the body of work from the first collaborative work created by married couple Jasmine Gonzalez and Elliot 'Askew' O'Donnell. It comes in the wake of an incredibly disruptive year during the global pandemic and is based on a philosophical outlook they developed as a coping mechanism. Appreciating that nothing happens in a vacuum and everything is part of a larger continuum. During the pandemic, Jasmine who comes from a fashion design background turned her interests back to photography. Elliot comes from a graffiti and large-scale muralism background but has also maintained a consistent studio practice over the last decade. These works are a fusion of analogue and digital techniques and a highly collaborative, process-driven approach. They also worked with Elliot's mother Meghan Humphries (florist) and Jahra Wasasala (artist and poet) in the creation of these 8 pieces.

About the Artist: Jasminie Gonzalez was born in San Jose, California in 1985 and is Mexican American. She has a Master of Fine Arts in Apparel Design and Master of Fine Arts in Knitwear from the Academy Of Art University, San Francisco. With 7 years experience working for a range of leading brands in Los Angeles and New York Jasmine began exploring her personal photographic work in 2018, ramping it up in 2020 during the pandemic. She has also assisted her husband on large-scale mural work in the US, China and New Zealand.

About the Artist: Askew One/Elliot O’Donnell is a self-taught multi-disciplinary artist hailing from the capital of the South Pacific, Auckland, New Zealand. From his roots in his city’s graffiti scene during the early 90’s, he became one of the key figures known internationally from the region. He has been an integral part of the scene through organising Auckland’s first graffiti festival, setting up multiple gallery spaces (Disrupt Gallery, Gallery With No Name and Studio 40) and publishing both a magazine (Disrupt Magazine) and book (InForm: New Zealand Graffiti Artists Discuss Their Work) showcasing New Zealand graffiti art. Additionally he has directed around 35 music videos for mostly hip hop artists.

Since 2010 Askew One has evolved his art practice into the Post-Graffiti realm, focusing on studio work and large scale outdoor murals. Askew One’s focus has progressed from text and portraiture based paintings into a style he describes as 'portraiture by alternative means' that is part still life and part abstraction. He uses a combination of analogue and digital techniques to create compositions made from 3D scans of random objects and textures from the street. He views these components as a recording of human movement through urban space - like a mass portrait versus one of an individual. 

From 2016 Askew One has been based between Brooklyn and his home city of Auckland.
