Stencil & Graffiti Murals by Martin Whatson

graffiti-and-decay-whatson-2

Norwegian born artist Martin Whatson has a continuous urge to search for beauty in what is commonly dismissed as ugly, out of style or simply left behind. He looks for inspirations in people, city landscapes, old buildings, graffiti, posters and decaying walls. This interest for decay has helped develop his style, motives and composition and he enjoys creating either unity or conflict between materials, backgrounds, motives and human intervention.  Inspired by artist like Jose Parlá and Cy Twombly, his abstract graffiti and stencils are a mix of urban scenes showing the development of walls lifetime. He uses gray tones as a basis but adds vibrant colours to break the monochrome concrete expression and bring a splash of life to his motives.
