Remi Rough: Lost Colours & Alibis

May 24 2009 . 03:37pm

Remi Rough is one of London’s leading street artists and has pioneered collaborations between art-music-fashion. Not only was Remi was recently invited to host the Tate Modern’s street art debate and is about to head off to France for a public commission by the museum of Santander, but he has a solo show coming to London: Lost Colours & Alibis.

This is his first major solo show, opening June 12th at the new Shoreditch space Urban Angel, which sees a move away from his graff roots to large scale abstract works based on Homer’s classic ‘The Odyssey’ and also coincides with the launch of his first retrospective art book.

Says acclaimed artist and accidental gallerist Pure Evil: "Remi is the bastard son of Robert Motherwell and Franz Kline… With two fathers like that it’s obvious he knows where art is coming from, is now, and is going in the future…  I’m looking forward to seeing where his art goes in the future… probably a residence on Mars or Jupiter perhaps or  even a galaxy far, far from here…" 
 
In fact where Remi is going next is back in time to Homer’s ‘The Odyssey’. Each of the vibrant, large‐scale canvases is based around a particular story or character from this epic book of poetry. 
 
Rough opens the show fresh from a prestigious commission at the Museum of Santander, France and says even those who have followed his work closely till now will be surprised and challenged by the Urban Angel collection…which is exactly how he likes it:   
 
“There is only a certain distance you can travel with a form or shape before it abstracts ‐ these paintings are the end result of going beyond that initial distance into lands unknown and this is where the reference to the character of Odysseus lies.” 
 
Homer’s masterpiece, dating back to the 16th century, has provided creative inspiration throughout the years and across the arts ‐ from James Joyce (‘Ulysees’, 1922) to The Coen Brothers (‘O Brother, Where Art Thou’, 2000). Like the twists and turns of the best story‐telling, the textures and lines in Remi’s latest artworks are built up from layers.  
 
An early pioneer and chronicler of street art, Rough is always influenced by the city‐scape around him and the sharp, linear edges of ‘Lost Colours…’ reflect the modern architecture of his travels throughout Europe and of course his beloved home town, London.  

The Lost Colours & Alibis show runs from June 12th – July 10th, 2009.
