APESEVEN / SYDNEY
George Hambov aka Apeseven grew up in the 1980's Sydney skateboard scene. Spending most of his time exploring industrial areas, listening to hip-hop, he grew up on a healthy dose of anime, skateboard art and graffiti. Apeseven predominantly approaches work with a street art perspective, freehand aerosol and traditional brush techniques. Works primarily incorporate mixed media, acrylics, aerosol, inks, found paper and objects.
Influences are drawn from science, technology and folklore.
Apeseven's current works focus on elements of alchemy and evolution. A fusion of childhood creatures, science, complex symbolism and an aesthetic drawn from an observation of potential, imagined and observed worlds.
