ABOUT ISSUE

Nazar ISSUE is an artist and graffiti writer from Moscow. He describes his artistic style as «urban glitch»: Nazar reflects his interest in typography and digital images in it. ISSUE’s method is based on a direct contact with an object and emphasis of its details, blemishes and texture. After that, artist integrates these elements in one composition. ISSUE’s style is characterised by combinations of clean geometric forms with natural textural planes and lines, which depict negligent street aesthetics.  The vast majority of ISSUE’s artworks are created in a street space by means of spray and water paints. While making studio works, he experiments with various materials. Nazar prefers working at abandoned industrial territories or along railway lines, where you can find objects diverse in forms and textures — these details can be neatly used in an illustration. «During the working process, I give a freedom to sporadic ideas and leave some space for improvisation, due to which I obtain abstract subjects and font compositions like this» — tells ISSUE.
