Remi Rough

Remi Rough

United Kingdom • Born in: 1971

British artists

Born in 1971 and based in London, Remi Rough is one of the UK‘s leading abstract ‘post-graffiti‘ artists. Having started as an old school graffiti writer, spraying letters on public walls and trains in South London in 1984, the artist moved from the streets to the gallery and staged his first solo show in 1989. Remi Rough has made a massive creative progression over the last thirty years as a writer and artist. By now, and as one of the founding members of Agents of Change, he concentrates completely on a not lettering-based expression of graffiti. The artist has brilliantly managed to harmonize the outdoor and indoor settings for his abstract form of expression without alienating his signature style. Still working in public space, Remi Rough now also uses spray can and paint brush to create pieces on paper, wood, and canvas.
