Alex Brewer (aka HENSE) combines the visual vocabulary of graffiti with abstract expressionism to build these enormous murals, some of which wrap around entire buldings. The Atlanta, GA based artist scribbles, drips and splashes paint, producing brightly colored areas which are lively and peaceful at the same time.
Describing his process, Brewer says, “I generally work on things in a very instinctive way. I paint, spray or draw shapes and marks, then decide on what stays and what goes. I try to never be afraid to paint over something or make changes, allowing breakthroughs to the other side. Sometimes the part you hate the most about a painting becomes the most layered and interesting area once you’ve destroyed it.”
