Paris based Antwan Horfee explores various creative methods of spontaneity and experimentation that have made him internationally recognized for his eccentric and playful graffiti work in the streets of Europe and abroad through drawings, murals, paintings, and object making.

Drawing influence from historical Avant-Garde art movements including the Cobra movement, the Gutai group, and Tachisme, Horfee’s paintings evoke a sense of physicality and action that compliment and relate to his work. His semi-abstract paintings are imbued with vibrant color, improvisational brush/spray techniques, and often depict distorted representational references inspired by his fascination with underground comics and zine cultures.

CHILD-LIKE ILLUSTRATIONS BY OSCAR GRONNER

Norway-based graphic designer Oscar Grønner’s illustrations introduce us to a strange cast of characters. Rendered in a naive style at odds with the more polished aesthetic of his design work, Oscar draws weighty figures in white worlds. Some pose sphinx-like in the desert whilst others gaze out to sea. The almost monolithic quality of Oscar’s childlike illustrations almost recalls the tubular style of Fernand Léger’s semi-abstract paintings.
