About

Introducing the up and coming street artist RAE, born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. This will be his first show in London. The artists says: 'Nocturnal Trips' means everything and nothing about how art relates to my existence. In a literal sense, it deals with the the "trips" I take to install the work I put up on the streets at night and how the city seems a lot different when your scheming as opposed to getting a latte. In a more metaphorical sense, 'Nocturnal Trips' deals with the thoughts, flashbacks and projections I think about when going in and out of an awake-sleep state in the middle of the night. The body may be physically resting but the mind continues to work. I get more work done tossing and turning in my bed, getting up to take a pee or checking my front window for crimes being committed then I do most mid-days. Those nocturnal thoughts, however absurd or realistic they may be, play out as random images, in a non-sensical way, but are usually the most fruitful and translatable to my work'.
