APESEVEN

Year born : 1974

 

live and works : Sydney , Australia

 

 

Apeseven’s play on life and death is recognisable with his works having a comprehensive visual presence. Often challenging in nature, asking the observer to question relationships between form, time and space. 

Over Apeseven’s 15 year long career he has exhibited in Australia, USA and Europe. His work found both on the street, in galleries and in numerous publications. Freehand aerosol and traditional brush techniques are evident with works primarily incorporating mixed media (acrylics, aerosol, inks, found paper and objects). Apeseven’s current works focus on complex bio-feedback driven loops involving a tapestry of pattern, animals and skeletal structures.
