Contemporary artist #Onelife183 has nothing mysterious in this tag, it's a nod to his inspiration, New York Graffitist Taki183 (who was most prominent in the late 60s and 70s). From legends to icons, Disney to our everyday, #Onelife183 adds the breath into the art he creates. A digital platform with hand embellished prints, this is an artist who is growing in the art world with demand for his pieces making editions sell out pieces, yet unlike many other artists, #Onelife183 keeps his edition sizes small making the client who purchase have something very few people in the world will ever own by him as an artist.
Weekends as a child for #Onelife183 was spent with his grandfather who himself was a keen artist and became an inspiration for #OneLife183 in his early years. As a teenager, experimenting in street art carved out a foreseeable path and put him on the journey which he is now on, using these early life experiences to create the digital artwork you see today.
#OneLife183 is known for his distinctive pop paintings, each one featuring his trademark spray bottle (can you spot them?) and often the comic 'pow' or 'pop'. Using complex collage techniques, each piece is a dynamic creation of mash up pop culture which work to critique the banal and the mundane. His artwork challenges mainstream media values and inspires a sense of freedom in life. Are you ready for the journey?
