Maybe it comes from the inherent cynicism that comes with city living, Trase One and his works never run out of commentaries, may it be political, social, or even the mundane. Yes, the ubiquitous wit doesn’t stop at wall or on the canvas, Trase is like this, even in person, and it’ll leave you torn thinking whether that was a joke or a shade he just threw in the open.

Site-specific works aren’t products of a dull mind, and like Trase and his snappy back-at-ya remarks, his works demonstrate an alert mind and a keen awareness of surroundings and its character. Always involved, always interactive.

Whatever it is, it’s always good to have artists like him on our side to keep us on our toes.
