A counterpoint to the term “Sky’s the Limit”, referring to the idea it’s always possible to work beyond boundaries. The statement “Style is the Limit” addresses the need for an artist to recognize that boundaries and limitations exist in any chosen art form and that artists need to have boundaries in order to develop a style. Aryz argues that in reality, artists are subject to the boundaries implicit in their chosen technique and that these boundaries are the critical factor informing the way that their style and it’s individuality, is perceived by the viewer.
Aryz (pronounced ar-eez) is a young artist hailing from Barcelona, Spain, where he moved from Palo Alto, California, when he was a child. He has achieved widespread acclaim in recent years, due in part to his artwork being featured on Aesop Rock’s recent album “Skelethon” and a recent January 2013 cover and editorial featured in Juxtapoz magazine. Perhaps most astonishing of all, a string of stunning large-scale contemporary murals across Europe, South America and North America. Aryz has been regarded by some as a transformative figure in contemporary muralism, an artist who has taken the ideals of heavy metal illustration and a legacy of European street art and combined them into a completely new and unique form of public art. He returns to the Bay Area, the place where it all started, for his highly anticipated sequel and first time showing at FIFTY24SF GALLERY.
