Oscar graduated from the Graphics (printmaking) course at Leeds in 1994, and established his studio in 1996 following a period working at Advanced Graphics London (fine art screen printers). He lives and works in North London. Influenced initially by 70’s and 80’s BMX and skateboard cultures, Oscar began to see the emergence of early Electro culture in London, where the letter based ‘graffiti’ art form ‘took hold’ of him for the next decade or so. Fuelled by a mix of M. McClaren’s ‘Duck Rock’, A Tribe Called Quest, Keith Haring and Futura 2000, the cut and paste aesthetic of Hip-Hop led to another decade hunting down the original tracks sampled within the records he was buying. A vinyl collector to this day, tastes spread further to include Disco in all it’s forms, and Oscar has DJ-ed extensively including residencies in London and Italy, and notable guest spots in Japan and Glastonbury.
