About Stohead’s art
Stohead’s artistic passion is to depict the art of writing, which is displayed throughout his oeuvre. Scripture transports information, provokes thoughts and emotions, which coalesce and are then permanently preserved on paper. However, scripture can turn into an aesthetic masterpiece when using the skill of calligraphy. It is this very process combined with the code of the streets that characterize Stohead’s creative work. These codes are composed of lyrics from songs, texts, and or keywords of relevant social issues decoded and organized by the artist. With repetition of the extracted phrases they are then turned into a design and or a three-dimensional sculpture.The arrangement diverts readability and leaves the beholder with the impact of colour figure, and shape.
