ARTIST

Joanna Gilbert uses spray paint and mixed media to convey what she terms ‘urban expression’ – a reflective internalisation of images gained from the observation of street art within urban environments.

Maverick acts of graffiti and street art appear throughout the urban landscape in an uncontrolled manner against the backdrop of predefined and approved architecture. This rebellion of interest tells a story of a polarised world – one where dictatorship meets expression.

Aspects of the random and the uncontrolled are juxtaposed with order and formality. This blend of controlled and uncontrolled is translated as an intuitive response, represented on canvas.

“I see the streets as galleries. Whether we like it or not – urban walls are a shared canvas for anyone with a spray can.”
