Hot KNARF Pushes a Graffuturist Organic Edge in BK

Posted on November 30, 2015

Currently in Miami painting by a bus stop in the midst of the Wynwood storm, Austrian Knarf brought his sketchbook to life with characteristic wit and rhythm in Brooklyn last week on a large wall in Bushwick. The echo of lines and patterns may recall Japanese prints and the organic rippling of water on the shore or radio waves.

The hand-rendered extemporaneous quality of his blocking and texts keep you in the moment, the movements imperfect, the unveiling of sophisticated forms and palette a surprise. His is a studied interconnected biology and geology, shapes and abstractions, the foundational elements in black and white with a selected primary geometric form to make the contrast surge. With shout outs to Jes, Jaime, and his own Irga Irga Crew ((Mik Shida, Fresh Max, Mafia_Tabak) the bio and morphic dance into a third dimension here, bisected by a diagonal bar of aerosoled green, keeping it geometric and pushing Knarf right out onto a newer edge of the graffuture.
