Tonight see Lazarides Gallery present a new series of paintings, Never Too Late…, by leading graffiti artist, Mode 2. This will be Mode 2’s first solo show at the gallery.
Never Too Late… sees Mode in a more politically reflective mood, whether it be his take on the end of communism in A Farewell To Grand Ideals, 2008 (pictured), or his views on religion or the environment. Mode’s work is always supported by his trademark draughtsmanship, self-taught from his days reading 2000 AD comics or drawing posters for b-boying dance competitions. These new works capture movement and energy, freezing the action at its most crucial stage.
