About ASHES57

Illustrator - painter - photographer - videographer

since 2004
Ashes57 is an illustrator, painter and photographer whose work has provided some of the most iconic images of the underground bass music scene from the early days of dubstep through to footwork and beyond.

From the flyers and posters she produced for the legendary Dub War parties in New York to record covers for labels including DMZ, Swamp 81 and Hyperdub, her illustrations, design work and pho- tography have provided the visual foil to many of the most exciting moments in electronic music of recent years. Other musical collaborations include the artwork for the Wu-Tang Clan’s 2009 album, Enter the Dubstep, and the videos for three DJ Rashad tracks released on Teklife and Hyperdub.

A distinctive visual style links her illustration, painting and print work - images which are dense and detailed with fine and intricate lines. Her complex cityscapes, rendered in a largely monochromatic palette with an occasional burst of colour, are playgrounds for a revolving cast of DJs, musicians and revellers.
Collaboration with fellow artists and musicians has been an enduring source of inspiration, starting with the time spent working with Shepard Fairey in his Los Angeles design studio. Her photography documenting numerous Obey exhibitions and street art projects has been included in publications such as Arkitip and Supply and Demand - The Art of Shephard Fairey and has also been displayed at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston. Street Treasures, a book of street art photography compiled over several years spent travelling the globe, was published in 2012.
