Manchester born and based artist angel 41 is shaping a new disorder replete with texture and abstract form. Torn paste ups and shards of graffiti reveal broken, unhinged figures peering through the urban chaos. These expressive works of art expose an underworld of psychological disorder whilst mirroring the evolving nature of the streets.
Abstract spatial relationships form a complexity of meaning infused with bitterness, irony and dark humour. In these powerful and emotional works, the paint seems to take on a life of its own, flowing and reaching out to form abstract, organic mysteries that tell of a fragmented, chaotic world.
