Third edition in this remarkably successful series is devoted to one of the greats of the Dutch and European street art scene, Erosie.

Active since 1993, Erosie has developed a totally unique style that in his own words ..".looks for parallels between and the nuances of the graffiti-codes, the illustrated image, commercial visual language and the traditions of art..." His goals are to use, confirm, deny or question these fields visually and/or conceptually in the quest to define his own personal visual language, which is a mixture of street art and pop art. He uses humor, mixes graffiti lettering with typography, challenges us with puns and wordplay and his illustrative style is a cross between Edward Gorey and Robert Crumb think no further than the headless chicken or the two rappers, Jay-Z and Nas, battling it out in cartoon form.

Erosie has exhibited in all major cities in Europe including Berlin, Paris, Barcelona, Antwerpen and London.
