Graffiti artist Mason is known for his affinity for a graphic style with geometric traits and for typographic constructions. His continuous orientation on nearly mathematical structures is highly influenced by his father being an architect, a heritage he continues to draw from even today. Using his own name as the core of and medium for his works, he creates typographic constructions following definite rules, such as the regular width of beams and gaps in between them, in order for the symbiosis of the letters to be as attuned as possible.
Brought together by love for graffiti and street art, the two young entrepreneurs Patrick Droste and David Radon founded the gallery Art is Just a Four Letter Word in Soest in Germany with a goal to communicate this particular lifestyle and feeling. The unusual name for the gallery was drawn from the Joan Baez’s song Love is Just a Four Letter Word. The gallery presents the Mason’s first solo exhibition with the gallery. Titled For Your Eyes Only, the exhibition will feature the latest body of work by this prolific artist.
The exhibition will be on view at the gallery from February 18th until March 18th, 2017.
