Agent X, ‘Esper Analysis 706’, 2017, Flat Space Art

Agent X is an experimental multimedia artist, working at the forefront of contemporary art with a unique aesthetic that juxtaposes pop culture, fashion, music, politics and race. His memorable moniker hints at the ungraspable nature of his art, which shifts from piece to piece, never the same while always seeking to probe the role of the artwork. Poignantly, the name Agent X also alludes to a brutal moment in American history: X signifies the last name commonly given to African American slaves and, working under this pseudonym, the elusive artist strives to honour the victims of this history, seeing himself as “a slave to my art in a twisted way.”

Inspired by the film 'Blade Runner' in particular the scene in which Deckard discovers a stack of photos, Agent X was inspired by the mystery surrounding one of the photos. In reflection of this, the artist splatters a variety of bold vibrant colours such as: red, green, blue, yellow, white and orange which all interconnect to create a spontaneous explosion of abstraction.

Limited Edition of 20.
