Bates LockUp

Blending the images of street art into a respected form of abstraction, Bates graffiti artist brings the fresh creations inspired by traditional writings he saw on the walls of his hometown. At the age of only 15, he was dragged deep into the urban culture, finally choosing his artistic name and slowly developing the characteristic style that was always more important than the technique, as Bates himself claims. Starting from Copenhagen, he traveled around the globe, decorating walls of numerous cities, at the same time having no problem with indoor gallery spaces.
