Against white walls and the thinking-space of a gallery, is it a juxtaposition or a symbiosis when a graffiti-work is hung? This exhibition engages the audience into dialogue with what is, in essence, the most omnipotent question of graffiti close-up- âIs this convincing as Art with a capital A?'

"Creating work in the studio helps me move in the right direction, relax, delve into my thoughts and break down my style, which gives me confidence to experiment more on the streets.
