Remi Rough deals with visual semantics, distilling fragments of the world around him into powerful abstract compositions. Unlike ‘pure’ abstract painters, Remi’s pseudo-sculptural paintings and large- scale murals are instilled with a ‘street-wise’ energy and tension born from early experiences as a young graffiti writer, painting walls and trains across the world.
Those familiar with the intricate interplay between geometry, line and color seen in late-80’s wildstyle graffiti will undoubtedly discover deconstructed visual clues to the artist’s schooling. The instinctive use of color and geometric form in Remi’s work can often result in what might be described as the graphic notation for some unseen urban symphony.
