Erosie - Part of Rebellion #3
Christian Hundertmark (C100):
Erosie
Part of Rebellion #3

for large view
Third edition in this remarkably successful series is devoted to one of the greats of the Dutch and European street art scene, Erosie. Active since 1993, Erosie has developed a totally unique style that in his own words “...looks for parallels between and the nuances of the graffiti-codes, the illustrated image, commercial visual language and the traditions of art...”

Erosie - Part of Rebellion #3(3)
Erosie's goals are to use, confirm, deny or question these fields visually and/or conceptually in the quest to define his own personal visual language, which is a mixture of street art and pop art. He uses humor, mixes graffiti lettering with typography, challenges us with puns and wordplay and his illustrative style is a cross between Edward Gorey and Robert Crumb — think no further than the headless chicken or the two rappers, Jay-Z and Nas, battling it out in cartoon form.

Erosie has exhibited in all major cities in Europe including Berlin, Paris, Barcelona, Antwerpen and London.

About the Artist:
piece by Erosie
Erosie
I try to look for the parallels between, and the nuances of the graffiti-codes, the illus­trated image, commercial visual language and the traditions of art, since all of these fields belong to my back­ground and my present-day interests. I try to use, confirm, deny or question these fields visually and / or con­cep­tu­ally in the quest to define my personal visual language.

Next to that I have no clue what I’m do­ing, but try to get away with it anyway.
