We are quite new to the work of Tilt at UAM but have really grown to like his work.. Recently featuring in POWs xmas show and also annihilating the outside of Village Underground (video above) Tilt has been tearing up the streets for years. We are loving his bold lettering and vibrant colour work.. Nostalgic sexy pop, meets dirty street.. loving it!
A little about the artist… Tilt is an internationally recognised traditional graffiti artist, originating from Toulouse in South France. A self declared “graffiti fetishist”, he learned his trade in the streets and on trains as a youngster. In the time since he did his first tags on a skateboard ramp back in ’88, his ensuing career has been nourished and influenced by extensive travel. Inspirational journeys have seen Tilt exhibit and leave his mark as far and wide as the U.S.A, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Laos, Taiwan, China, Canada, Philippines, Indonnesia, Maldivians and in excess of 12 countries throughout Europe.
After seeing EVOLs new work at Pictures on Walls we thought we’d share some more of his work through the years. Check out his site and Flickr below. If you love it like we do maybe purchase the new print.
The UAM team recently went down to Black Rat Projects at Cargo, London to see a fantastic Swoon installation. The show called ‘Murmuration’ was New York based Swoon’s first solo show in London and features some towering, bold, as well as beautifully delicate works. The show really highlights some of the great work that she has been producing for years on the streets and galleries around the globe.
On Thursday 1st December the UAM team went down to the opening night of POWs winter show. Star of the show Evol had a large variety of original work on display. The show also featured upcoming POW prints from Mighty Mo, Tilt, and Paul Insect to name a few.
Evol, the Berlin based stencilist brought his super detailed concrete jungle stylings applied to his signature mediums of cardboard and street style storage units. We absolutely love the amount of detailing he puts into his work and a big thumbs up at how his street style is still showing through to his gallery work today. Keep and eye out on the blog for more EVOL.
A variety of prints will be available over the next few weeks, and a Banksy early next year, so keep your eye on their site. Alex is really hyped for getting his mitts on a Mighty Mo, they do look amazing.
POWs show runs until 23rd December so go and check it out if you’re around London. The gallery is located at 46-48 Commercial Street, London E1. Nearest tube Aldgate East or Liverpool St.
