Artist Statement:
kElzO is one of the only internationally renowned and respected graffiti artist to come out of Manchester, England. Between the mid 80s to the late 90s he almost single handedly created one of the biggest ‘Halls of Fame’ in Europe. He turned the derelict high rises of Hulme in Manchester, UK into a mass of colour and abstract letterforms with a spray can and some imagination. This has gained him huge respect all around the world by purveyors and admirers of this underground artform. Graffiti has taken Kelzo to all corners of the world. Commissions have included a painting on the set of the BBC's Eastenders, the Beastie Boys shop in New York, designing window displays for Dr Martens shops in Europe, customising clothing for Tommy Hilfiger in Europe and more recently Telephone covers for Motorola handsets. He is now also one of the Graffiti editor’s of Hip Hop Connection magazine. He currently paints live at outdoor festivals such as Glastonbury and has launched a successful clothing label called ‘Urban Damage’. A new range of clothing is now available. He is also highly sort after by councils to run workshops for young people from deprived areas all across the Country. Over the years he has fine-tuned his style and now excels in abstract 3D letterforms and portraits. His exhibition at the new Arch bar (Aug 2002) in Hulme Manchester attracted 500 people on the opening night…..….
