Video: Mode2 Interview
Mode2’s buxom characters are recognizable around the world. The European graffiti legend is most often associated with the French graffiti scene but actually cut his teeth in the UK painting with the crew The Chrome Angelz. This video is a great succinct introduction to the artist following his exhibition Who Sold the Soul? at Galerie Issue / Sergeant Paper. He is a thoughtful and outspoken artist with a deep appreciation for the history of graffiti. In the video he also criticizes some of the recent graffiti-based museum exhibitions.
