TriFecta Collaboration featuring RasTerms, EYEZ & Depoe on Mid-Centruy Modern Furniture Store in St. Louis, MO.
This drawing provided inspiration for the wall mural titled "Trifecta". It was completed in St. Louis by RasTerms, Eyez and Depoe as a commissioned project for a shop that sells Mid-Centery Modern Based furniture. Compositionally, the symbols draw on the geometric forms of African masks; the underlying motifs were translated onto the top section of the brick surface with stripes instead of the glyph-like figure drawings. This study was a collaboration between RasTerms and Depoe, realized in the Bronx before the St. Louis commission. The orange ink is vermillion sumi ink, once reserved for the emperor of China and other nobility and the line drawings were done with black oil paint. The simple patterns juxtaposed against intricate lifework evoke images of dancers, musicians and shamans from an African tribe.
