BROOKLYN / USA
Askew One (Elliot O’Donnell) is a self-taught multi-disciplinary artist hailing from the creative capital of the South Pacific, Auckland, New Zealand. From his roots in his city’s graffiti scene during the early 90’s, he became one of the key figures known internationally from the region. Additionally he has been an integral part of the scene through organising Auckland’s first graffiti festival, setting up multiple gallery spaces and publishing both a magazine and book showcasing New Zealand graffiti art.
Since 2010 Askew One has evolved his art practice more into the Urban-Contemporary or Post-Graffiti realm, focusing on studio work and large scale outdoor murals. Askew One’s current work focuses mostly on painting, drawing heavily from his background in graphic design, still and moving image to create meticulously detailed portraits over layers of bold mark making.
