Speerstra Gallery Switzerland - John Crash Matos "The True essence of Graffiti"

from 2012-09-23 to 2012-10-23

Since the artist's first show at the Speerstra Gallery in 1984, Crash is back for his latest show "The True essence of Graffiti".

"Painting is my blog. Painting is my diary.Although I do not paint everyday, I am consumed with creating on a daily bases. For me, there is a concern that goes back to the true essence of Graffiti, to keep my name out there. To be seen, recognized, regardless of how or why.These small paintings share that common need regarding the challenge of working as a steady routine. I have been leaning towards large scale paintings and instead of trying colors out on the walls of my studio I decided to work out and introduce color schemes, concepts or whatever I had in mind on these smaller canvases. I didn’t want to lose the immediacy of the moments on walls that I would eventually paint over with primer…So this is what you get. Love ‘em or hat ‘em, it’s all part of the process."
