CT

CT style has transitioned from a classic wildstyle into something else. Most would view the work of CT and not think about traditional graffiti elements, other than the letterform. As you look closer you can see the subtleties, overlapping planes and negative space. His simplification of the letterform towards a type style is something that you see formed in his earlier work during  a 3d stage he went through.
It is interesting to see CT move through these phases, and it is exciting as well to see CT still bring most of these phases into his new work. You might say he has stripped everything away and created a more efficient version of style. By stripping away what he didn’t need CT has found something new. The true essence of those previous stages are still there, yet a evolved version emerges.
Working in abandoned and lost spaces CT searches for the perfect canvas that has the potential to create a contrast from his minimal mark. Graffiti minimalism, a deconstructed form taken to its most basic embodiment while still maintaining its initial concept of letter structure.
His work in abandoned areas is simple yet effective, staying true to common principles of graffiti CT is able to execute precise form while still maintaining a letter based principle. It is the silence in his work that stands out, the refined wholeness of 2 letters composed not only in form but in an imperfect space. The contrast of the insitu relationship of decaying chaos juxtaposed against the minimal works is impressive.
