Artist of the moment……..Street Artist Above

Above is an American street artist born in California in the year 1981. Above is famous for his subject matter of an arrow pointing up that is painted to look three dimensional. Above is a painter, illustrator, and also an installation artist. The arrows are sometimes hung from locations very high from the ground on occasion including words.

Above has worked in more than 100 different cities worldwide!

Similar to Banksy, Above has chosen to keep his identity a secret.

In this clip a great interview with Above. He talks about his childhood, and how living close to the train tracks turned out to be a blessing in disguise:

My personal favorite works of Above are his stencils that are time sensitive. As in the gallery above with a man that looks to be balancing on something painted, in fact the shape is a cast shadow that makes the picture complete when the sun is setting. What a great concept, time sensitive art!

price range information: Sorry none available.
