The literal subject of the Wildstyle paintings are calligraphic alphabet characters. They offer the uninitiated an entrée into abstract art, but the real carrier of energy in this body of work is brilliant prismatic colour contrasted with jewelled gestures and explosions of thrown metallic paint. Wildstyle was a commission from the Bank of Canada and Haskayne School of Business for their Commodities the Economy and Money conference in 2011. The paintings were given as gifts to the conference participants. Watch the video here.
