A NYC Appraiser of Art Meets a California Street Artist
Skye is a master of the "one gesture" – he doesn't lift his brush once he lays it down on the white surface. His lines are one complete movement in chronological time and in "signifier." The end result hits hard – as hard as the shapes of his line, creating a calligraphy of a new urbanstruct language which had its birth in the immediacy of creating guerilla art for the streets. - Fine Arts appraiser/Elizabeth Stewart.
Skye Gwilliam's artistic purge arose out of the environment of his youth. His need for artistic outlet grew with age into public forums as innovation of expression evolved into the need to impact culture in a world where the many have little weighable voice. - Horatio Rothchild
(With myself, it is a constant battle to magnify the emotion of
human triumph and struggle. Through my arts, I war in isolation. I war on the
streets to capture a moment of scream within the history of my generation.)
