Askew One

With a strong self-taught background in graffiti, graphic design and video-making, Askew One’s geographical isolation being based out of Auckland, New Zealand, hasn’t held him back from showcasing his work to the world. His consistency with his web presence over the last 12 years has made him world renowned and he is now considered to be one of the leading figures of graffiti and urban contemporary art from the Pacific region. The end result of his urban contemporary works is the product of his innovative process, which uses his skills in photography, graphic design, graffiti and traditional painting. By capturing his audience with visually complex and pleasing paintings, he is able to bring a greater story to the viewers attention: the importance of bringing to the forefront the economic and environmental issues that are currently in place amongst the smaller Pacific nations of Oceania.
