Although Vizie has exhibited twice before under an different name “Greater than the Sum” is his first solo exhibition under Vizie. A graffiti veteran who has established himself amongst the top graffiti artists of our era Vizie has maintained a strong presence in the streets. Focusing his attention on creating artwork Vizie tackled the gallery with the same intensity as he might on the streets. The outcome is an impressive body of work that showcases not only a great amount of skill but also a remarkable understanding of form and texture. The monochromatic paintings recede into each other layer by layer revealing abstract patterns that lead to a wall or break through a wall. Breaking from the traditional square and rectangle of a canvas the work also has a abstract shape contrasting the rendered patterns painted within. All around some notable concepts within the work and a strong exhibition.
