BRIEF
‘CHASING ACES’ is the first solo show in the U.S.A of new and archive work by UK based art duo STATIC.
STATIC is the creative output of Tom & Craig who have been working together since 2006.

Having met at art college, they began to share ideas and inspirations and then went on to complete BA degrees in Edinburgh and Liverpool. They initially returned to the North East of England to set-up their first studio and are now based in East London, where they continue to produce original work and screen printed editions in house and by hand.

Their work combines elements of street art and fine art, merging a clean graphic style with stencils, spray paint, screen printing and paint brushes, to create unique pieces which have been exhibited on the streets of London as well as a number of International gallery spaces.

2010 saw their first solo exhibitions in the UK with ArtRepublic London and in Japan with Gallery Kawamatsu, Tokyo – and since then they have been developing and creating their ‘layered glass’ works, which deconstruct the stencil and screen printing processes they have been exploring since they began working together.

These pieces were the focus of their second London solo show “Moments of Clarity” with Whisper Gallery earlier in 2012 and have also been exhibited in Singapore, Milan, Cyprus, Tokyo, Hiroshima, Osaka and now Las Vegas, Nevada.

They have recently returned from their second visit to Japan, where they were present for their second solo show with Gallery Kawamatsu in Tokyo, as well as shows in Osaka and Hiroshima where they completed a number of commissions and ‘live’ paint performances.

“For our first exhibition with Get Up Gallery, we have assembled a collection of works that cover our progression and development in terms of style, subject and execution.

CHASING ACES should give visitors an easy access point to the things that influence our work, how our style has evolved and where we’re going right now… keeping our foot on the accelerator and chasing down the next idea that is always on the horizon!”
