“A very Japanese influenced set from the size and rectangular shape references of the panes used in traditional Japanese architecture to the use of the brush. I tried to adapt my own approach to the respect for simplicity in Japan so as not to go over board or represent more indulgence as some work might portray more than others. The sun. The sea. And the dark side of life.”

ARTIST BIO
OSCAR T WILSON

Oscar T Wilson is an abstract artist with a multi-disciplinary practice spanning from painting, sculpture and cinematography currently undertaking his MA in Art & Material Histories at City & Guilds Art School, London. Raised in a family of artists, art has always been inherent to Oscar’s life and creating for him is as natural as breathing or walking. Oscar’s creative process is an intuitive exploration of new avenues of expression through materials and techniques drawing from different influences to create his own unique style. His practice is deeply influenced by his South London roots, his own life experiences of growing up in a squat house environment and the sense of freedom it gave him.

“I grew up in an old squat house in South London, Number 6 Rectory Gardens now called ‘social housing’. It was a black and white stripped house with a yellow door. Living in that environment gave me a sense of freedom that is evident in my work. My dad used to drag me and my sister to art museums and the deal was that I could spend an hour skating at South Bank. That’s where my passion for graffiti started. Graffiti and skateboarding that was all I cared about.”

Raw and powerful, Oscar’s work is a post-modern critique of social constructs, calling into question accepted truths and offering an unexpected alternative viewpoint. Performance and art go hand and in hand and the creative process in Oscar’s pieces is often the end itself. At the heart of his work lies a truly philanthropist endeavour of showing compassion and self-awareness as essential features of humankind.⁠
