Street Summer

Competition closes: 19 Jul 2011
Voting period: 08 Jul 2011 - 19 Jul 2011
 
Born in London in 1966 Req is a Brighton based artist schooled in the New York subway graffiti tradition. His graffiti career started in 1984 in Brighton's derelict areas but he soon started painting internationally onstage with the Norman Cook band Beats International.

Req had a brief musical career with the release of four albums of low key hip hop instrumentals on Skint and Warp records. His other notable musical partnership was as producer and beat maker for Yorkshire artist and rapper Kid Acne.

Req's new work is defined by his attempt to purge the graffiti and graphic influences of his past in favour of a lighter, diffuse impressionism which he calls 'Spraypaint Realism'. His more recent charcoal and spraypaint works on paper provide a quick and more expressive outlet to balance the more intensive 'Spraypaint Realism' style.
