If there ever was a time to have artists take charge in making a difference in the community it would be now. As technology soars to reach the outer limits, the boundaries created from our social issues is enough to make us all claustrophobic.
Imagine street art as unconventional since the days of Keith Herring & Jean-Michel Basquiat. Imagine Art that is Grimy, Dirty and Raw but packed with enough energy to move masses with its messages. When you draw these thoughts in your head, you would picture ARTIST 5.
Artist 5 is a transplant from Suffolk, England to the shiny beaches of South Florida. His art merges a wide variety of styles with existentialist thoughts. It incorporates the decay of materials as part of its charm. He claims his 5 Points of Power are “Urban Street Art, Abstract, Deconstruction, Dysfunction, and Existentialism”, which if you look at his work you can see truth in this statement. His work captures beauty in social madness.
On his website, ARTIST5.com, says “I like my work to look as if it were produced at an earlier date and over time with weather and age it becomes worn and battered with chipping paint and runny lines. “
