With a strong, self-taught background in graffiti and post-graffiti art, graphic design and video-making, Askew One’s international following and web presence over the last 12 years has made him New Zealand’s most world-famous & world-recognized graffiti and urban contemporary artist.
Many of Askew’s art projects occur overseas through direct invitation and have included projects in countries such as Switzerland, Singapore, the UK, USA and Tahiti. To date, Askew is the only NZ artist to have been featured in leading French publication ‘The Urban Contemporary Art Guide’ (2014) and is the only NZ representative to have exhibited in the Urban Art Biennale (Germany, 2015). His most significant accomplishment in 2015, was art directing, exhibiting and co-funding a culturally important group exhibition at aMBUSH Gallery (Sydney), titled ‘Post-Graffiti Pacific’. Askew continues to represent his country and the region of Oceania on the international urban contemporary map.
