CHIMP - Becoming

Glicee print on paper, 420 x 594mm.

Limited edition of 50 prints, signed and numbered by the artist.

This work features an extinct New Zealand Native Huia.

CHIMP is Wellington based artist with many murals to his name across New Zealand. In Christchurch, his work can be found on the Justice and Emergency Services precinct. CHIMP first started painting skateboards, moving to large artworks on the streets and now to his second solo show, Aliases. This is his last show in New Zealand before taking up a residency in the Street Artist in Residency programme in California. 

In Aliases, elements of portraiture, native bird-life and flashes of geometric forms, both abstract and suggestive, are deconstructed and placed together in fragmented compositions, allowing Chimp to explore the way we adopt personas for the personal, public and digital arenas we occupy, each pieced together from accumulated segments of expectation, like birds compiling a nest from various detritus. The result is a series of performances we play to suit our surroundings and situations, never wholly consistent and always shifting.
