ARTISTS / Tr853-1


The graffiti artist known simply as Tr853-1 (TraseOne) has been one of the pioneers of the local street art movement since 1999.

In 2005, he was granted the inaugural Goh Chok Tong Youth Promise Award, a scholarship for a young Muslim Singaporean and he attended the LASALLE-SIA College of the Arts and graduated with a Bachelor in Fine Arts (Honours) Degree in 2007.

The street activist, who is best known for his stenciled skaters balancing on shadows, gone on to have his work exhibited in numerous commissioned projects and exhibitions both locally and internationally, winning awards for his perpetually evolving style.

In recent years, Tr853-1 has been stenciling himself on his canvas, portraying the figure as trying to break away from conventions and restricted spaces, while also commenting on the role of an artist and on the medium or spaces he chooses.
