Like Alter, Ashes57 takes her inspiration from the urban landscape, but instead of directly referencing architecture, her work draws on sights and sounds to form busy monochrome scenes, filled with noise and buzz.
Among the cities she references are New York, Paris and London; infusing the streets she depicts with the sounds of her big passions in life – bass, footwork and dubstep music.
Ashes57 has previously worked with Shepard Fairey in LA, as well as designing posters and flyers for record labels including DMZ, Swamp 81 and Hyperdub.
She also created the artwork for the Wu-Tang Clan’s 2009 album, Enter the Dubstep and three videos for DJ Rashad, who sadly died earlier this year.
Boxpark says, ‘her illustration and design work has been the visual foil to many of the most exciting moments in electronic music of recent years.’
Ashes57 will be on show throughout August at Boxpark Gallery, 2-10 Bethnal Green Rd London, E1 6GY
