As an activist in the local street art movement, TR853-1 (TraseOne) is highly regarded as one of the leading pioneers who is always pushing boundaries and overseeing the progression in the scene since he started engaging in the arts circa ’99. What started as an ego-driven adolescent hobby of just scrawling his name on the streets has evolved into making his art create a more intellectual dialogue with its viewer, most of which contain subliminal messages cleverly embedded in the work. A self-taught graffiti artist, Trase was granted the inaugural Goh Chok Tong Youth Promise Award in 2005 to expand his knowledge in art, eventually graduating with an Honor’s Degree from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore in 2007. Trase has since had his work exhibited in numerous commissioned projects (PayPal Office, Berlin, Facebook Asia-Pacific Headquarters, Singapore, Naumi Hotel, Singapore, OCBC Bank 6th Avenue Branch, Singapore) and exhibitions both on the local and global (Singapore, France, Indonesia, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand) platform, winning numerous awards for his perpetually evolving style.
