Roid: More Than Ever


South London-based graffiti artist Roid recently debuted his first solo show titled More Than Ever, in association with London creative agency Topsafe. Shown last week at the Truman Brewery in London, the gallery exhibition marked Roid’s entry into the world of fine art following a decade in the global underground graffiti scene.

Roid’s works depict abstracted compositions produced using fragmented and distorted hand-painted images in vibrant-coloured animation inks. In More Than Ever, Roid takes influences from airbrush art of the 1970s and 1980s, ‘trippy’ low-fi computerised graphics, and a nostalgic 1990s aesthetic.

Created by London-based animator and videographer Kieran Gee-Finch, the exhibition preview video taps into the digital aspect of glitch, error and the disruption of graphics. Check out Stylus’ Glitch Graphics report for more on the burgeoning ‘glitch art’ scene.
