Agent X, ‘Starbuck Hallucinations 4:27am’, 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.”

Starbuck Hallucinations 4:27am is inspired by the American 70's television series Battlestar Galactica and main character Lieutenant Starbuck who has a hallucination at 4:27am following a search mission. Reflecting the frantic search undertaken by the team, Agent X depicts an abstract and chaotic image filled with vibrant rainbow blocks of colour, splatters and strokes of black and white which all interconnect and represent the emotions and actions of outer space.
