“I am a spokesperson for totally anarchistic mayhem on a bed of traditional family values.”
Matias Faldbakken

Norwegian writer and artist Matias Faldbakken’s nihilistic attitude pokes at both social conventions and pop culture. His most recent work features ‘rubbish bag drawings’ continuing from his earlier tape pieces; destruction continues to create a ‘non’ aesthetic of abstraction. Black marker pen is scribbled straight on to plastic bags; letters, words and phrases are obscured, butchered and left unfinished. There is a feel of street graffiti, vandalism and the hurried and careless scrawl of a tagger. Illegible quotes and motivational slogans, offer no salvation. All beautifully framed, here’s the plastic bag you’ll want to keep.
