Delta – Random Distress

I’ve been a long time fan of Deltas sculptures but his new work has moved to a whole new level.  The work pops with colour playing tricks on your perspective & leaving you baffled as to where each element finishes and the next one starts.  More photos and show details after the jump.

Boris Tellegen was born in 1968, in the Netherlands.

He became one of the pioneers of the European graffiti movement, in 1984, when he made his tag DELTA for the first time.

His work shows the hallmark of his time at the Faculty of Industrial Design at the Technical University Delft, from where he graduated with a degree in Industrial Design Engineering in 1994.

The first DELTA tag appeared on the streets in 1984: through the years this Netherlands based artist has developed a complex and unique style that resembles isometric plans and plays with ideas of architecture and high tech futuristic vehicles. DELTA introduces an alien and idiosyncratic aesthetic into graffiti art that escapes the common logo-like word IDs. He has influenced writers all over the world for decades with his 3D letter style.

Delta’s fine art paintings and sculptures have recently been exhibitied in Singapore / Malaysia, London and Italy. He has also produced work for musicians such as Linkin Park, Dj Vadim (Ninja Tune), Rima project on Jazzanova Compost Records, Dub Records and Alex Cortez.

An internationally acclaimed contemporary artist, he skilfully experiments with a variety of mediums in order to create his amazingly intricate paintings, prints, 3D sculptures, video works and installations. His work is reminiscent of the old Utopists and Constructivists and can be seen as portraits of industrial architecture.

Delta shows with Elms Lesters in the UK, Alice Galley, Brussels & has a show opening shortly at Jonas Kleerup Gallery in Stockholm. The exhibit entitled ‘Random Distress’.
