Alphanso Appleton

Alphanso Appleton is an aspiring Liberian photographer trying to bring attention to the natural beauty and potential of his home country that has for too long been associated with tragedy rather than possibility. His incredibly powerful photographs of West African culture and surfing have been published in media around the world and inspired many to visit the region.

 

"Felipe Pantone’s work is at the cutting edge of street art. Straddling conventional graffiti, typography and abstraction, his work fuses bold elements of graphic design with highly evolved geometric shapes to create an ultra-modern aesthetic, which complements and reacts with the stark modernity of our cityscapes. Drawing on our concerns of the digital age and the speed at which technology is developing, Pantone’s art is like looking several light years ahead into the future and discovering a new language in which to communicate." - James Buxton.
