CEPT has been writing graffiti since 1987 and first gained notoriety in the mid 90’s on the streets of East London. He is widely regarded as a pioneer of the East London graffiti scene. His style is defined by a unique mix of letter forms, loud exaggerated colours and pop-art-appropriated super humans painted across walls and shop fronts.
For over 20 years CEPT has been disrupting perceptions of the urban landscape with his sampling of visual codes rewired from graffiti, pop art history, comics and music. CEPT’s paintings are not about surface or the physicality of mark making, but are windows into other worlds that destabilise our sense of place.
CEPT is one of London’s most prolific street painters and his extensive travels have seen him paint and exhibit internationally. He recently exhibited at the World famous Known Gallery in Los Angeles. His work features in many national and international collections.
“My work has always been influenced by music and sampling, so to compose a piece that combines my favourite songs with my love of comic book art and the human obsession with relationships seemed a natural progression of my style”
