VENTS137 is an artist from the South West of England, currently living and working in Bristol, UK. Alongside his gallery output he has been contributing to graffiti culture for nearly 2 decades and his work frequently explores and references the rich history of this energetic and rebellious art movement.
From his early beginnings photographing trains with his father to his fixation with 1960’s and 70’s comic illustration, his works are a playful combination of obsession and an inquisitive mind. Visually, his work combines layered texture and wash with his unique and hyper detailed aerosol line work.
Working with a colour palette balanced between the sepia scale of bygone animated commercials and the neutral tones of 1980’s car paint, used by the graffiti forefathers, allow his work to remain subtle yet sure footed.
