Xit Art BRETT SLATER aka Aspyre Xit
Background & Philosophy
I was born in Sydney in the.late 60,s & grew up in the Inner West.
Xit art has evolved out of something that I started in the mid 90s, known for three years as Exidore Art, which was based Glasgow, Scotland. It was a collaboration between two artists that both started in advertising & had had enough. I broke away in 1998 to form Xit Art in 2002.
Rebirth as Aspyre Xit & Xit Art was officially started in 2002 by Brett Slater, aka. Aspyre Xit, but earlier if you look at the work. The style described is a fusion of Pop Art, Abstract & Dadaism I call Techno Pop. Like evolution, art is a slow process. If something is created, yet not useful, it is held onto until it fades away naturally. If I am understood from the first kairotic moment, then Im not working hard enough.
The past five years has been about redefining myself as an individual artist & finding other artists to collaborate with.
A background in commercial photography has helped me to verify that ART IS FOR EVERYONE. To look at, to love or to hate it, this is AnyRelativeThing. Nothing has changed for tens of thousands of years, yet we relocate our thoughts to keep up, surpass and to use in enterprising progression.
