Enshrouding the blandness of white walls across asphalt jungles are Kris Abrigo’s bright, hyper-graphic, paintings. Making over the austerity of unimaginative corners with his architecturally inspired compositions, Kris breaks the soberness of structure and geometry with his waggish neon sparks and sunny pastel splashes; a palette delighting the audience with hints of the lowbrow. Extremely prolific, there’s almost nothing this muralist won’t coat: from manicured buildings to beaten streets, from provincial playgrounds to stairwells, Kris is quick to surf the urban party wave for as long as it thrills him.
Assembled like a puzzle, Kris’ design outlines the distinct roles individuals play in the greater symphony of activism. When voices blend, the deeper the sound, the louder the music; the more powerful a protest.
