Matthew Kwest, S, 2014
Artist RegionOntario
DescriptionS is a commissioned piece for Humber College, created from spray paint, metal, and hardboard in the form of a stylized “S”, part of the artist’s name. Kwest’s graffiti tag is done in a complex style of interwoven letters known as Wildstyle, an intricate form of graffiti characterized by extremely complicated overlapping letters and shapes. Kwest’s sculptural work pushes the boundaries of his art into three-dimensional work, turning the illusion of volume into a complex decorative art piece.
