Artist duo STATIC – made up of friends Tom Jackson and Craig Evans – have been producing bold original work since 2006. They are known for abstractly exploring duality and conflict in their artwork through figurative assemblages.
From stencil and spray paint to vivid collages with feathers and glass, STATIC’s aesthetic is as dynamic as it is intricate. Blending pattern with portraiture, their signature artistic style is heavily influenced by modern ‘tribes’ and mythologies.
STATIC’s mixed media creations primarily examine perception, with colours and shapes seemingly suspended through the use of layered materials. Metaphorically, however, this duo challenges the viewer to consider their own cultural identity or ’tribe’.
Through iconic signs and symbols charged with their own histories, STATIC are able to create engaging associations with the way our culture both exists and differentiates itself with those that have come before it.
STATIC’s successful exhibitions to date include events in the UK, Japan, Singapore, Italy, the US, India and Russia.
