Abstract painter Deams has been an active and influential figure in the Melbourne contemporary art scene for over a decade. Best known for his work as a street painter or ‘Graffuturist’, his mural work is described in the artists’ own words as “… a constantly evolving conversation between energy, emotion, language and environment”. His striking public artworks often reimagine existing architecture into a surreal expression of geometric illusion, playing with the nuances of each building in a way that creates a site-specific conversation between artist and environment.
Deams has an intuitive approach to painting and process, which allows for his work to oscillate between tangible and intangible forms and realities. As an exhibiting artist Deams enquires into the nature of human experience, traversing a deeply familiar yet simultaneously mysterious landscape of the psyche.
