“4me4you” visits Stolen Space Gallery, which showcased the artist Paul Stephensen.

Paul Stephensen is an artist who creates his work through a form of painting called Sous Rature. According to the artist: “Instead of using a blank canvas I take original artwork (not prints or multiples) created by other artists and erase parts of them. The result is destructive and creative, a forced collaboration, iconoclasm; image breaking in the literal sense and graffiti in that ‘what constitutes graffiti is neither the inscription nor its message but the wall, the background, the surface; it is because the background exists fully as an object that has already lived, that such writing always comes as an enigmatic surplus, that is what disturbs the order of things.”
