Artist of the moment…….Street Artist Eko


Eko is a wonderful street artist working in a geometric abstract style with flat bold color.

Eko was born in Wandsworth, London in the year 1974. He began tagging and writing graffiti in the mid 1980s in the Hull area. This area of the city has many abandoned warehouses and buildings perfect for street artists use.

Eko would later work in the Bristol area.

The artist has worked designing record covers.

The artist uses a wide variety of shapes in his work. Some even look like letters. With this wonderful mixture of shapes the artist is able to create movement. The artist doesn’t do much work in smaller canvases sizes, lets hope for some small treasures from this great artist soon!

The artist is based out of Missoula, Montana. She is an art professor at the great University of Montana at Missoula.

In this clip we take a trip to Missoula to visit the studio of the artist. I would fast forward to the 1:54 mark in the clip where the interview begins:

Lo is a past grant winner of the National Endowment for the Arts.

Lo’s plates remind me of Picasso’s. Her work’s seem to be more narrative in nature, but I enjoy the end result. What a master at creating figurative work either flat or in three dimensions.
