The Dronescape is a painting about the beauty and euphoria of graffiti mark making. Using drone as an extension of the body, the painting's "molecular" layers build to create a window that can be viewed from different perspectives. The wall viewed from a far captures the soft nostalgia of nature. The wall view up close captures the harsh complexity of the process.
This work is part of an on going experiment in perpetuating the tool making/ hacking behavior practiced within the graffiti subculture.
This may be the first mural sized painting ever created entirely by drone.
KATSU is a prolific artist who emerged in New York City in the late 1990s, primarily recognized by his tags “KATSU” and a single stroke skull icon. As an artist who uniquely blends traditional graffiti, digital media and conceptual artwork, KATSU creates an entirely new hybridized approach to contemporary art. Both through his visual and digital projects, KATSU questions notions of reality, fiction, and ‘graffiti,’ by conceptually integrating notions of vandalism with commercialism and technology.
