" In a relatively short urban art career, I have defined and perfected an atypical paint/stencil style that ignores the accepted visual language of street art almost completely - I call it Urban Aesthetics (a modern-day take on a 19th century art movement). Hailing from Cork (Eire), I have lived the majority of my life in and around London. Self-taught and non-conformist, my influences range from dark graphic novels through to the works of Francis Bacon and Aubrey Beardsley.I have painted/exhibited alongside respected artists such as Goldie, Nick Walker, Jamie Reid and Jef Aerosol. But in general, I shy away from the scene, keep my own counsel and shun the typical life of a street artist." - Finbarr Dac
" We are constantly surrounded by pop figures – in films, in music, comics, and even in gossip magazines. They are sometimes our escape from reality, our fantasies. Coins portray something opposite: the real, the everyday.This project is about individual expression in opposition to massified thinking, about how our personal passions are more worthy than things that are imposed to us. The paint brings to the faces of kings and presidents borrowed narratives from other famous characters and unleash individual alternative stories." - Andre Levy
'These ‘Abstracted Landscape’ paintings represent an accumulation of years of observation and study of the way light transitions from one moment to the next. Ranging from overt colour fields to more mysterious abstractions, they cover a period in my creative development from 1996 right through until the present, and have been influenced by the works of the American Luminists, Mark Rothko, and the later Abstract expressionists such as Martyn Brewster.' - Nicholas Down

Tim Bower became a commercial artist at age 10, when he won a national contest for Hygrade's Ball Park Franks. Since his mom wrote the winning copy ("I like Ball Park Franks because they're plump like my little brother"), and he drew the accompanying picture, (a chubby anthropomorphic hotdog-boy), illustration seemed a natural calling. Since the contest's prize, a 3-speed Columbia banana-seat bicycle, had about the same monetary value as today's average spot illustration, he's been pretty much treading water ever since.
