EGS

Egs’s World Map triptych, a pen-and-ink rendering undertaken in his classic “inkblot” style, is deeply influenced by the calligraphic essence of graffiti. Twisting and reshaping the topography of the world until it proclaims his own name (albeit abstracted almost beyond recognition – the Americas forming the ‘E’, Africa the ‘G’ and Asia the ‘S’ of his name), the maps exemplify Egs’s chirographic style of graffiti, his ability to twist and reshape the letterform into infinite arrangements and shapes.
