Born in The Netherlands, Joram Roukes mixes his background in academic art with lessons learned from street art and graffiti. His multi-layered paintings have a collage-like quality and force contradictory readings due to the depth of elements. Oils, Roukes upcoming show at Signal Gallery, is his first solo exhibition in London.

Oils runs April 5 to 28, 2012.

Signal Gallery, 32 Paul Street, London
