Alpha/Beta : Alphabet Abstraction Series
2018 - Midwest USA
This is one of Savant’s first major abstraction sets. There are 26 total pieces in this set, with colors and themes ranging from deep outer space, to bright neon rave settings.
During Savant’s preliminary research during his university schooling for Design, he went through design history courses which taught the historical aspects of typography and design. In addition to the evolution of these disciplines, Smith also payed close attention to its parallels in graffiti’s typographic evolution. Lettering, color theory, standard design principles, and typography all fascinate Savant. His main goal with these pieces was to present a merger between the graffiti world, fine art world, and design world in a manner that could be visually intriguing to all audiences.
