They can be found adorning soon to be forgotten spaces, acting as a commentary on gentrification and the masculine realm of street art. The 360° film and interactive VR art gallery takes the viewer inside Rone’s world: we follow him into the rarely-explored spaces in […]

Repeating synth patterns, straight drum lines and lots of reverb on the vocals are characteristic for this style. Thus my concert for this artist is referring to the aesthetics of that era. Animations of analogue graphic computers (Scanimate) and early, […]
