The art works show wild and illegible tags, throw ups and deliberate drips in form of aesthetic tools. The heavy heritage of the graffiti tradition is used as a tool to evoke a representation of the rebellious as well as anarchic act of a past era of subculture. MOSES & TAPS™ experienced walls, yards, trains as well as suburbs firsthand. They painted countless trains, throwies, pieces and left their marks, in form of tags and stickers, nearly everywhere. In this unique collaboration you find their exceptional cyan and yellow signature in fragments of the art works.
In deconstructing subcultural and semiotic codes, TILT X MOSES & TAPS™ plays with the decontextualization of writing, textures and intensity. This series focuses on the simple but visually intended and far more disruptive compositions in order to present those layers of writing in their purest way.
