Hugs, Smiles and Tickles by Rhys Marcus Brown
Rhys Brown started his artistic practice as a teenager tagging the streets of Stockwell as INKO(E). His street work drew upon overheard conversations and his own stream of consciousness, incredibly creating a SAMO-style of poetry before Rhys had formally learned of Basquiat and the 1970s New York street scene.
At the Croydon School of Art, Rhys took his practice from the street to the studio, opening his work up to unexpected techniques and concepts. This is where the artist began working seriously with Gyotaku printing, a traditional Japanese process made extremely difficult by the unpredictable surfaces found on the nostalgic plush toys Rhys uses as subjects.
Relief printing ink, acrylic and diamond dust on primed canvas. This triptych is the largest artwork ever produced by the artist.
