Profile: Stephen Hiam's Sick Unconventional Paintings

By - Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

Stephen Hiam’s paintings are unconventional to say the least. Abstract in nature they appear to have a similar energy and aesthetic to bombing. In his artist’s statement he said “I was born into graffiti but I always felt a little bit different. I liked the chaos and the destruction, but they took this rebellion and turned it into a fashion.” Though bearing a resemblance to the marks created when filling a fire extinguisher with paint, these works are actually made with a leaf blower, or in his words, “a customized Makita BBX7600 – Four stroke solid state ignition, custom paint delivery system. Dispersion capacity – 3 Ltrs of paint per second to a maximum distance of 15 meters.” Scroll down to see some more of his work and a video he created and you can check out the full profile on Stephen Hiam on the Graffutuism website.
