Boris Tellegen

As an artist who transformed European graffiti in the 1980s, Boris Tellegen, formerly known as Delta, spent years deconstructing and reconstructing the five letters of his name. Studying engineering alongside his informal study of the letterform, his works came to function almost as maps of reassembled alphabetical geographies. Tellegen’s more recent studio work, in particular his collages, have continued this study of form and shape. Constructing intricate, futuristic landscapes, he then peels away the surface to reveal hidden lands beneath.
