As an activist in the local street art movement, TraseOne is highly regarded as one of its leading pioneers. Since 1990 he has been pushing the boundaries of the movement and overseen its progression to a recognized art form.
What started as an ego driven adolescent hobby of scrawling his name on the streets of Singapore, has evolved into a more intellectual dialogue most of which contain subliminal messages cleverly embedded in his work
A self-taught graffiti artist, Trase was granted the inaugural Goh Chok Tong Youth Promise Award in 2005 to aid in expanding his knowledge of art, eventually graduating with an Honor’s Degree in 2007. Trase has since had his work exhibited as part of numerous commissioned projects and exhibitions both locally and overseas, winning several awards for his perpetually evolving style.
