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.
He was the top prize recipient at the Curious Duke Curious Pie Show, and he has been a finalist in numerous prestigious art contests. Agent X’s work has been exhibited in art meccas all around the world, including London, New York, Singapore, San Francisco, Spain, Amsterdam and Toronto.
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.”
Golden Era features a clever technique by the artist Agent X where different layers are created through an almost stencil-like effect of a canary yellow featuring figures representing the ‘Golden Era’, and behind more muted colours and graffiti, designs are visible. This wonderful combination of street are and stencilling are a must have.
