The Seattle-based artist, Anouk Rawkson, is walking into a new era of his artistry expressing his culture and inspiring subcultures, working in mixed mediums his works are recognized by aggressive strokes, large shapes, elusive symbols, and an underlying texture of frustration. He is self-educated in the arts and has lived in Paris and New York, seeking guidance from his peers and stimulus from his travels, getting inspiration from his surroundings.
With his new works, Rawkson is capturing the present moment in a form of self-expression where he has approached his art with great confidence as if to lose itself of the former anxiety which was present in his earlier works it is a change in taste that inevitably comes with passages of time.
When he’s not working on his art he works as a curator. One of the shows he has co-curated for the past 6 years is Imminent Mode, an annual show that brings together artists working in different mediums who end up creating something on the verge of fashion and visual arts; something that is both wearable art and a gallery installation.
