Welcome to Modus Locus
TRIPARTITE brings together three distinctly different "street artists" to share the gallery walls at Modus Locus. Each brings their own unique perspective to their somewhat elusive public art endeavors to this exhibit.
GROE's body of work is about the relationships the active participants of graffiti go through: the bold, colorful, calculated, and decisiveness of the graffiti style connecting with its environment filled with uncertainty and forgetfulness. The experience of lurking in the shadows is more impactful and interesting to a graffiti artists than the bright remnants the artists leaves behind. Giving one the sense of a presence in something much larger than themselves.
BIAFRA critiques traditional America, and questions the white culture that surrounds traditional values, and takes a critical look at the problems, both politically and ideologically. He hides layers of information in all of his work to give insight to the content and history of the piece. A lot of the information borrows from printed ephemera: old newspaper clippings, advertisements or pictures he has taken. Sometimes they are subtle, sometimes they are more obvious, but when they are layered and stacked on top of each other, the words become simultaneously overwhelming and obscured.
BLACK DAZE is constantly generating bright and bold characters and images in the different media of murals, paintings, drawings, stickers, T-shirts, and prints.. Seemingly drawing from imagination and mythology, his work conjures magic from the imagery of the ages. He brings the characters and icons to life on just about any surface, bridging the gaps between street/surface/graphic/media artist.
Each artist will have additional merch to purchase: Stickers, t-shirts, posters, prints, etc. Please check back for additional events during the month for opportunities to meet the artists and buy their wares.
