Szabotage is a Hong Kong based street artist. Originally from London, Szabotage has exhibited internationally, in Europe and throughout Asia, with sold out exhibitions and solo shows, and numerous collaborative projects.
Szabotage has painted for the HKWalls street art festival and was a finalist in the global phenomenon Secret Walls, where he became known for his old-school graffiti style and onstage antics. The artist has a TEDx talk on ‘Resilience is the Ultimate High’. Patrons include Louis Vuitton, Jaeger lecoultre, Deutsche Bank, Levi’s and The Ritz Carlton.
As well as being known for his street art, Szabotage’s body of work ranges from canvas portraits, interiors, cars, motorbikes and sculptures. His pieces incorporate bright colours mixed with popular cultural references.
Szabotage challenges typical canvas limitations, through upcycling and recycling and has created pieces using deconstructed metal cans and wood, sculptures from the tops and boSoms of aerosol cans, and constructed frames made from 2n.
|The artist is best recognised by his signature Koi fish. An iconic symbol of strength, adversity and good fortune, the Koi features heavily throughout his work.|
