TOGO - Vodka and Almonds

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

"To have an outlet of creativity where you don’t have to explain anything and that’s the beauty of it, is you can just paint something and it doesn’t have to be good or bad. It’s just for you." Photo taken while painting a commuter train moments before being spotted. Haarlem, Netherlands, 3:30am.

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.
