TOGO - In the Wrong Place

Archival print on 310gsm Ilford Photorag,  594 mm x 420 mm (unframed)

"The illegal nature of graffiti makes it unsightly for many people. For others, this is exactly the attraction of the form. The act is often more important than the  artwork itself." Photo taken while painting an abstract piece after original graffiti piece had been buffed. Wellington, New Zealand, 1:10am.

TOGO is a graffiti artist who has garnered an extensive reputation for his defiant acts of vandalism. After writing his name for over a decade, TOGO now looks to challenge the aesthetic rules of graffiti by further developing the abstract within his artworks. Dismayed by the stagnation of graffiti, TOGO is determined to advance the culture by creating a visual statement against any “rules” while staying openly true to his individual identity. The following photographs expose TOGO’s process as he leaves behind the accepted rules of vandalism to create an illicit series of works about breaking the principle that graffiti even has to portray a name.
