TOGO - The Feel

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

"Fear is good. That uneasy feeling is a signal telling you what you have to do. I’m still scared every night I go out. I know that feeling can never be overcome, yet I force myself to go do it. I know that once I get out into the action, the fear disappears." Photo taken while walking home after a night painting. Wellington, New Zealand, 4:00am.

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.
