Overthrone! Pooring Reign

OVERTHRONE! explores symbols of power and the control they have over our minds. We take symbols of power and deconstruct them by flipping them upside down, suggesting overthrowing the reigns of power. It is a subliminal call to action… Overthrow the powers of doubt and oppression in the mind so we, the individual, can let go of fear and take power back! 

Tristan Eaton (HF Vol. 34) is such a versatile painter, his collage-like murals often include a combination of typography, realistic portraiture, illustration, and patterns — all rendered freehand with spray paint. His ability to mix and match various styles within a single, cohesive image lends his work well to collaborations, like the ones he completed over the course of the past week with fellow street artists Cyrcle and How & Nosm in Brooklyn.

LA-based artist duo Cyrcle use their graphic design skills to create clean, geometric images with philosophical underpinnings. Whether working on murals, paintings, or installations, their aesthetic combines Ancient Greek imagery with futuristic designs. For their latest solo show, “NOTHING EXISTS!” at Station16 Gallery in Montreal, they explored the divide between our perception and reality. Playing with glow-in-the-dark paint, they created a new series of paintings and relief sculptures. Contributing photographertheonepointeight recently visited Cyrcle’s studio in LA to give us a glimpse of what their working on before “NOTHING EXISTS!” debuts on June 4.

CYRCLE

Street art collective CYRCLE. made up of a trio of artists with backgrounds in fine art, graffiti, and design, created this incredible mural in the Culver City Arts District, California in 2011. The mural, spearheaded by Branded Arts, took four days to execute and continues their exploration into life and death from an earlier exhibition titled, We Never Die.

“We close our eyes in this reality and open them in another” —CYRCLE.
