Description: ATom1746 (A-Tom1746) is a Perth based urban artist inspired by the combination of traditional pop art and contemporary street art. His career as a visual artist began in Christchurch New Zealand where from 2008 onwards his traditional pop art paintings began to be influenced by his admiration and study of street artists such as Banksy, Shepard Fairey and Faile. Since then he has been involved in a number of group and solo exhibitions with work being featured on TV and local newspapers. In 2012 he travelled extensively to study art, visiting sites including the British Museum, Tate Modern, The Louvre, MoMA, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and he even met with Mr Brainwash, a leading street artist. A minimalist approach to his work is often taken, limiting the palette to only two or three colours in the style of a Banksy stencil, Shepard Fairey Mural or even a Warhol Screen-print. He believes in the timelessness of black and white and likes to use salvaged materials and images wherever he can, turning something discarded and forgotten, into something new and fresh but still with a sense of history. All works are produced with high quality lightfast paints and finished with varnishes to ensure preservation of the materials.
