Organised Chaos explores how the line between graffiti and fine art is becoming increasingly blurred. What was once exclusively “urban” has become somewhat domesticated — Banksy pieces sell to Brangelina for over $400,000. The sterile white walls of a classic gallery seem as far as possible from street art's chaotic, guerrila origins, making us wonder if graffiti loses its meaning when viewed out of context?

AWOL is a collective that embraces both sides of the scene, throwing up pieces and gallery shows in equal measure, often on an impressively large scale that is demonstrative of the striking talents of each of the collective's artistically diverse members. The crew's founder is Slicer, who has previously  proven his ability to singlehandedly carry a whole exhibition with RTIST. Slicer's work dips into abstraction, but always remains unmistakably rooted in graff. Brash colour schemes and extreme, slashing geometry combine to create exciting and engaging work.

This exhibition is as eloquent an argument as you'll find against those who claim street art belongs only in the open as Slicer proves it can be just as effective when bordered by four walls.
