“Our work is the expression of our ideas and is made to connect and question the ideas of others. It’s not about being remembered, for us it’s about our work making an impact right now.”

Static

Static is an artistic collaboration that brings together the creativity of Tom and Craig. Their work combines elements and layers that are built up and created mostly from spray painting and acrylic, with other mediums used depending on the surface of series.

 

The majority of their work goes through a process involving image manipulation and digital creation which is then either cut as a stencil or made into a silkscreen. With elements of street art and fine art, Static creates unique pieces which have been exhibited both in London and internationally.

 

Having met whilst at college, they both studied BA degrees prior to setting up their first studio in East London.  Happiest when working with their hands and directly in contact with their piece they are continually experimenting with different mediums and processes to communicate their ideas and challenge themselves to develop.

 

Often with a strong political element, their work is indicative of their comic assault on the daily hypocrisy we find ourselves surrounded by on a day to day basis. Mixing colours and patterns, Static find inspiration in contemporary revolutionary actions; riots and strikes, denouncing aspects of our society such as consumerism.
