STATIC is the creative output of image makers Tom Jackson and Craig Evans, who have been a joint artistic force since 2006. Having met at art college, they began to share ideas and inspirations; then went on to complete BA degrees in Edinburgh and Liverpool. Initially returning to the North East of England to set-up their first studio, STATIC are now based in East London, where they continue to produce original work and screen printed editions in house and by hand.
Their work combines elements of street art and fine art, merging a clean graphic style with stencils, spray paint, screen printing and paint brushes. STATIC’s work is constructed from found visual imagery as well as symbols and signifiers from modern culture which they continue to apply to a wide range of surfaces, including wood, metal, Perspex and glass. This enables them to create unique pieces which have been exhibited on the streets of London as well as a number of international gallery spaces.
Since 2010, STATIC have been producing layered glass works which have been exhibited in the UK, Japan, Singapore, Italy, the US, India and Moscow. In 2013 a selection of pieces from their ‘Phantasms of the Living’ show was added to the private art collection of the Saudi Arabian Royal Family.
