The Krah – Street Artist / Fine Arts
THE KRAH is a decrepit yet talented young man who has wasted most of his youth scribbling on everything and using any medium he could get his hands on. Brought up in the Mediterranean chaos of Europe’s most ancient city, ironically the one that gave birth to democracy.
The KRAH was always fascinated by the urban disorder of his hometown of Athens, Greece (where the priests are the richest men and the sunstroke makes the nation think that democracy still exists.) As vandalism was the most fun thing to do, THE KRAH started painting the streets and the subway trains of Athens in 1997, but his graffiti and street-art can also be seen in the streets all over Europe and cities such as Tokyo and Bangkok.
After moving to East London The KRAH is still a very active street-artist and if graffiti is about underground freestyle funky visuals in illegal spots, THE KRAH has plenty of them to offer.
On the other hand The KRAH has also exhibited in lots of galleries in London and internationally in gallery’s such as: Brooklynite in New York, ATM Gallery in Berlin, Art Basel at Miami Beach, in both of the Mutate Britain shows, Black rat Press, the Pure Evil Gallery and Art-Republic in London or Whinos Gallery Washington and the Vavel International Comics Festival in Athens.
He has had group shows alongside artists like Os Gêmeos, D-face, Sickboy, Swoon, Elbowtoe, Mode2, and Pure Evil. Additionally he has been one of the artist of Banksy´s latest Can´s Festival in London.
