Arty-Fact: A patchwork quilt of influences – including such sources as music, futurism, paparazzi, reality TV and the artists Romare Bearden, Andy Warhol, Banksy, Takashi Murakami and Damien Hirst – it’s not exactly surprising that it is a multimedia mash-up style with which Agent X has become synonymous.
Drawing together diverse cultures, also including facets of technology, fashion, race and good old-fashioned politics, Agent X’s work somehow maintains a timeless sheen while also seeming very much of-the-moment.
Reine de la Côte d’Ivoire’ - or, Queen of the Ivory Coast - depicts the majestic face of a woman, emerging out of near-abstract paint daubs. Agent X’s innovative approach generates a beautiful interplay of light and dark, a delicate reciprocity of the figurative and abstract, with a fluid quality.
