Moose (also known as Paul) Curtis is a street artist with a very different agenda to most, in that his art is made generally through simple acts of cleaning. His murals appear all over the world, the high contrast of bright clean marks on dark dirty backgrounds make his pieces intriguing both visually and politically as the lines are blurred between rules and common sense, prankersterism and subversion. With critical acclaim in the New York Times the BBC and CNN, he draws attention to pollution and grimy concrete that line and brace many cities. Moose has exhibited all over the globe, appearing in the US as part of ‘the Creators Series’ that visited New York and LA in 2009, ‘Eco Art’ in Istanbul, ‘Save The World in 10 days’ at the Vooruit in Ghent, Belgium, The ‘All I Can’ film launch symposium in Whistler, Canada and AG Ideas in Melbourne, in most cases holding workshops as part of these visits as well as presenting.
