Crash, graffiti on wood and canvas, 1986

This American artist grew up in the Bronx and started to spray paint as a teenager, mostly the subway trains of New York were his target. During the 70s and 80s, New York’s artistic glory years, his CRASH-signature was seen by every subway rider. Because of gaining appreciation by galleries and at the urging of Keith Haring he started by the 1980s to work on canvas as well. Besides the design of letters and words, mostly his comic-like style is recognizable from his hand.

The loose pieces of wood, mounted on the canvas, give Irrestible an extra dimension, as it were. His usual medium and technique, free and not demarcated as if his image is continuous, support the appearance of his irresistible street art.
