About this product

Rerun’s high impact images are a blend of extreme contrasts between order and chaos; graffiti is juxtaposed with classical painting, elementary mark making with skilful technique, explosions of colour with simple motifs, and urban degradation with flawless finishing. His art is his personal attempt to make meaning of daily life in a world where we are bombarded with thousands of marketing messages a day. “It feels like chaos hitting our senses and yet we wear a mask of serenity like we’re on top of it all. I hope to show both the noise and the calm in my work.”

A graduate of Edinburgh College of Art and Edinburgh Atelier of Fine Art, Rerun has been drawing and painting, making poster, and creating graffiti and tagging for as long as he can remember. Classical art school gave him the tools to make any kind of art he liked and he chose to tread a path between old and new - returning to his street art roots, but blending in elements of realism learned from the study of the old masters.

Initially he used one medium at a time but has now moved on to mixed media, enjoying the freedom of collage, the immediacy of spray paint and the different marks that can be made, but also the flawless finish of oil paint which he was trained to use. He loves the materials and the craft of making something from a blank canvas just as artists have for hundreds of years.
