Askew One / Entropic World
Askew One / Elliot O’Donnell is a self-taught multi-disciplinary artist hailing from the capital of the South Pacific, Auckland, New Zealand.
Since 2010 Askew One has evolved his art practice more into the Post-Graffiti realm, focusing on studio work and large scale outdoor murals. Askew One’s work has progressed from text and portraiture based paintings into a style he describes as ‘portraiture by alternative means’ that is part still life and part abstraction. He uses a combination of analogue and digital techniques to create compositions made from 3D scans of random objects and textures from the street. He views these components as a recording of human movement through urban space – like a mass portrait versus one of an individual.
