Re-thinking the practice and tradition of graffiti is one of MOSES & TAPS™’s key principle. Nowadays their art is often described and labeled as “abstract vandalism“, “conceptual vandalism“ or “graffiti avant-garde“. Kolly Gallery presents the continuation of the iconic series SPLASH™ CARTA by the artist collective MOSES & TAPS™ from 15th to 20th February 2021.
SPLASH™ narrates the story of the end of graffiti. The iconic and very significant series by the artists’ collective MOSES & TAPS™ had its origins back in 2010.
Although MOSES & TAPS™ were practicing the art of graffiti at their best, they realized that they were nonetheless subject to the rules and hierarchy of the subculture and their artistic freedom was restricted by the prevailing rules of vandalism. Their aim was to „end“ a tradition in order to create, activate and promote a more progressive, conceptual and avant-garde approach to a tradition that has begun long before them and will last long after them.
