Good To Know: Artwork is shipped directly from the artist.

Series: 2017 Fall Collection Agent X's new series deals with questions about dystopia. Are we in the middle of a cataclysmic decline in society? Is it too late to turn things around so we're living in a utopia? Agent X has a few words about the direction his new series has taken... “Planet Earth has gone to shit! Between Trump, misogyny, racism, war, genocide, etc. I had to get off the planet and so did my art. The way I did this was by going back to the movies that inspired me as a kid, and now as an adult - films like Interstellar, Blade Runner, Star Wars and other Sci-Fi cinema.”

Signature: Hand signed and numbered

Arty-Fact: ‘Golden Era’ is about Hip Hop’s golden age. The golden era is usually cited as being during the 1980's and 1990's. Diversity, quality, innovation, together with strong themes of Afrocentrism and political militancy, influence and define this era. The music was experimental and the 'sampling' eclectic.

In 'Golden Era', golden three-dimensional figures in traditional b-boy, hip-hop stance are laid over a second collage of paint and graffiti colours.
