Rough designed and impulsive scratched surfaces commemorate primitive caveman markings and drawings on walls to assert human existence across time. In Tilt’s new pieces graffiti writing is represented layer by layer, parallel to the organic sedimentation process. This compelling approach evokes an aesthetic of urban history and outer environments inside a gallery. Within his altered practice he focuses on the beauty of tagging, dripping, as well as transience. In deconstructing subcultural and semiotic codes, Tilt plays with the decontextualization of writing, textures and intensity. The compositional layers are sensibly chosen in its colors and dynamics, in order to create a piece of deconstruction, disintegration and juxtaposition.
The heavy heritage of the graffiti tradition is used as a tool to evoke a representation or memory of a rebellious as well as anarchic act of a past era of subculture. The new pieces of art constitute a synthesis between exertion and interior spaces. Anti-aesthetic excerpts from the urban sphere have been rearranged and made accessible for a commercial audience.
