Paper was originally developed by the Egyptians over 5000 years ago from a marsh grass called Cyperous Papyrus, which was cut in to strips and softened with the muddy waters of the Nile. Paper is, in fact, one of the most popular materials with which to fabricate art.
FA-Q had notoriously been part of legendary Rivington School, and was known for his graffiti, street art and painting. Wendall’s art thus provides a link that transcends time and place, visualizing movements of a global culture, and in this case charts the arrival of graffiti into Finland

Kevin Wendall aka FA-Q’s “proper” art career started in New York. He was a graffiti artist in the 70’s and 80’s who changed billboards and advertisements, scraping out letters to give them new meanings. By the mid-80s he was a rising star, selling his art for high prices.
