AROFISH (JIM MATTHEWS)

Arofish is a London-based stencil graffiti artist whose output ranges from slogans and cartoons to more abstract and opaque designs and imagery. He is also a political activist street artist. Some of his London graffiti includes anti-war and Palestine solidarity graphics, plus ‘Alien Contact’ – masquerading as a cash point machine (i.e. of the Fortress Europe people-bank) with instructions to asylum seekers highlighting the intrusive surveillance spreading through our carceral society or prison-like (the ‘Liberty Zone’). The work ‘Waves of Terror’ retreats from literal clarity to evoke the menace of colonial adventure, and various other examples are even more indirect and suggestive. Impressionistic flashes of mournful figures appear in limbo, enduring the meaninglessness of life waiting to happen. His work can also be found in Iraq, Lebanon and Palestine.
