A very dynamic wall executed in Adelaide CBD from a couple of years ago by DEM189 (France), Tarns One & Slicer AWOL Crew. We feel it needed to be shared, enjoy!
Tarns One (The one who freaks the funk), has been painting graffiti since 1987. Influenced by the Graffiti phenomena in Sydney and Adelaide during the 80s, Tarns picked up a spray can and hasn’t dropped the can since. He is best known for his ability to perpetually reinvent his style, all the while preserving the more traditional elements of graffiti. This has made him an icon in the Australian graffiti culture. Tarns always comes correct with one of the best can control skills in the game.
Tarns has exhibited in many group shows nationally and internationally, and now announces his FIRST Solo exhibition: ‘TARNS ONE’ - his works will be exhibited at the recently opened gallery ‘THE SPACE’ Currie Street, Adelaide (entry via Burnett St).
This exhibition will show works displaying his impeccable skills with aerosol paint. Tarns continuously stretches the limitless possibilities this art form can be taken. His works are a statement; they feature abstract ideas exploring the relationship of forms and colour with some works derived straight from raw graffiti. His paintings are an explosion of dynamic colours, technical line work and geometric letter forms.
After 27 years of painting graffiti, this exhibition will be a real treat for anyone who has seen Tarns Graffiti Art in the streets, and for those who haven’t you now have the opportunity to see and potentially own a painting of this Australian Aerosol Genius.
Tarns One - First Solo Exhibition on show at - THE SPACE, Currie St (enter from Burnett St) opening on Friday the 28th of November (6-9pm) – 30th of November for 3 days only.TARNS ONE Facebook Event Page
