With a strong, self-taught background in graffiti and post-graffiti art, graphic design and video-making, Askew’s international following and web presence over the last 12 years has made him New Zealand’s most world-famous & world-recognized graffiti and urban contemporary artist.
Askew’s international project invites have included countries such as Switzerland, Singapore, the UK, USA and Tahiti. To date, Askew is the only New Zealand artist to have been featured in the leading French publication The Urban Contemporary Art Guide (2014) and is the only New Zealand representative to have exhibited in the Urban Art Biennale (Germany, 2015). His most significant accomplishment in 2015 was art directing, exhibiting and co-funding a culturally important group exhibition at aMBUSH Gallery (Sydney), titled ‘Post-Graffiti Pacific.’
Askew continues to represent his country and the region of Oceania on the international urban contemporary map.
