PROJECT S2DIO #052 – SHEONE

Né à Londres en 1969, James Choules AKA SheOne commença le graffiti dès son plus jeune age, inspiré par le rock/punk et les noms sur le métro de New York. Il peint et fait du graphisme depuis plus de vingt ans, exposant à Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Sydney, Singapour, Berlin et Milan. Sa typographie abstraite est profondément encrée dans l’ère du graffiti new wave du début des années 80, mais sa sténographie stylée et son approche à la peinture uniquement expressive, le maintiennent résolument dans le présent. Son travail fortement personnalisé s’est mélangé à l’univers de la mode (il a travaillé récemment avec les marques Addict, Kswiss et sa propre marque RideAlone) et à la collaboration audio, faisant de lui un des tous meilleurs artistes culturels selon “Refill Magazine”.

En 1998, il est apparu dans le premier livre du collectif Scrawl, Dirty Graphics and Strange Characters entant qu’élément majeur d’une génération d’artistes qui ont repoussé les limites du graffiti vers de nouvelles directions. SheOne est reconnu internationalement et a prouvé que le graffiti a sa place dans le monde de l’art contemporain.

Born in London in 1969, James Choules AKA SheOne began making graffiti in his teens inspired by rock/punk music and spray names on the New York subway. He has been painting and making graphics for twenty years, exhibiting in Los Angeles, New York, Tokyo, Sydney, Singapore, Berlin and Milan. His own brand of abstract typography is rooted deep in the new wave graffiti era of the early eighties but his stylised shorthand and uniquely expressive approach to paintings keep him firmly in the present. His highly personalised work has crossed over into fashion (most recently working with Addict, Kswiss and his own brand RideAlone) product and audio collaboration, causing “Refill Magazine” to refer to him as a leading cultural artist.

In 1998 he appeared in the the first Scrawl Collective book Dirty Graphics and Strange Characters as part of a generation of artists who were taking graffiti to new levels and in new directions. SheOne has received international recognition and proved that graffiti has a place in the contemporary art world.
