Worldwide BubbleGirls Photograffitis

Fetish BubbleGirls presents the work of internationally recognized graffiti artist Tilt in an unabashedly new, colorful, and playful volume. Graffiti has always been an inherently dangerous, high-wire act — the execution of art in risky, often illegal situations. And one could argue for a strong parallel that exists between the classic graffiti writing’s extensive use of bubbly, curvaceous shapes and the female form.

The French born graf writer obsessively explores these tensions and parallels in Fetish BubbleGirls as he explores the world in search of beautiful young ‘canvases’ on which to execute his art.

Although this mission straddles the globe, there is a common thread that emerges as the most striking detail of the project — the openness and balance between innocence and playfulness and sexuality and the highly charged environment that all of the models inhabit.

TILT is a member of the all-star French artists’ collective “Le Club.”

About the Artist:
Tilt’s focus on fun, high impact shapes and strong colours is a reflection of his history as a true graffiti writer, trained on the streets and in the train yards. Similarly, his extensive use of bubbly, curvaceous forms relates to his obsession with beautiful females. Following classic hip-hop graffiti ideology, his individual styled name is the focal point in the majority of his paintings, in Tilt’s case a bubble letter “throw-up.” “Throw-Up” is graf terminology for a writer’s spray-painted name incorporating fast lines and done in one or two colours, designed for fast execution; it is the action which Tilt is most interested in, thus he utilises his throw-up styles to visually communicate the fun of creating graffiti in risky situations.

His ensuing career has been nourished and influenced by extensive travel. Inspirational journeys have seen Tilt exhibit and leave his mark as far and wide as the U.S.A, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Thailand, Canada, and in excess of 10 countries throughout Europe. At present, Tilt has published a book of his art and photography title “Fetish BubbleGirls,” which will be available on the night. He is also working on manufacturing plastic models of his throw-ups, heading on more tours and of course painting murals and wallpieces.

Tilt is a member of all-star French artist’s collective Le Club 70 and has an avid interest in skateboarding and photography.
