TOGO - Stuff and Nonsense

Archival print on 310gsm Ilford Photorag,  594 mm x 841 mm (unframed)

"By looking at space in a different light, then city becomes a place to interact with, to touch and play. It becomes more alive. Spaces that are largely ignored suddenly become revealed. Passive objects quickly become active." Photo taken while hiding from cars on a rooftop. Wellington, New Zealand, 1:30am.

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.
