Based in Adelaide, South Australia, Vans the Omega has been creating & painting letter forms for over two decades, which has seen him, travel around the globe consistently since 2000. Most of his influences have come from ancient scripts, Architecture, engineering, nature & the idea of movement or balance.
A move into the finer art arena has also given him a chance to push more abstract concepts and ideas while still using the knowledge of Colour and balance to involve the viewer. The juxtaposition of endless texture meeting sacred geometry or form influenced by optical Illusion is the current direction Vans aka Joel Van Moore is undergoing which also lends itself well to Sculptural works and Installation.
Recognised for his attention to detail & search for perfection within letter structure, technique & life has put Vans the Omega in the spot light worldwide & helped to advance the way in which the art form is painted along side his other TMD members & extended family of Artists around the planet.
Currently the mix of sharp highly technical machine like shapes, seemingly impossible patterns mixed with a traditional graffiti aesthetic based on sound foundations are blending to produce new innovative works which continue to push the boundaries on a world scale & propel his own desires to reinvent & perfect his craft on a daily level.
Well versed in a number of disciplines from Design, Photography, Clothing & moving image keeps the ideas & endless possibilities rolling inside this artists head with no end in sight. Stay tuned for the next two decades of progression.
