INSA

A graduate of Goldsmith's, London, British artist and designer INSA began his career as a graffiti writer, painting streets and buildings as he travelled. Soon becoming known for his now trademark 'graffiti fetish' pattern, INSA's work is now held in the V-A collection, and has been presented at Tate Britain, London.Outside of the UK, INSA has left his mark in major cities around the world including; Tokyo, LA, New York, San Francisco Luxembourg, Lisbon, Hong Kong, Warsaw, Berlin, Brussels and Montreal.

INSA's work unpicks some of the apocryphal stories of today: departing from some of the symbols of modern aspirations, INSA's visual reasons the fetishization of products in modern society, and the commodification of success and ambition. The paradoxical nature of his work questions both his own position as an artist in a consumerist world, and collective ideals in our society. Also key to INSA's output is a pervasive sense of irony and self-deprecating humour, which has made his work accessible and enjoyable to many kinds of viewer, in many different contexts; from the conventional gallery space to the streets of an inner city neighbourhood.

Recent solo exhibitions include:
Self Reflection is Greater than Self Projection, (Londonnewcastle Project Space, London) Belong/Belongings (Yves LaRoche Project space, Montreal) Gloss (Above Second Gallery, Hong Kong), Girls on Bikes, (Hewett Street Gallery, London), MORE MORE ( Fifty24SF Galley, San Fransisco.)
