Cyrcle is a Los Angeles-based graffiti artist collective founded in 2010 by Davey Detail and Rabi, who go by the monikers "Cyrcle" and "Devin Liston," respectively. The duo, who met while attending the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, were initially drawn to graffiti art as a form of self-expression and rebellion. Cyrcle's work blends traditional graffiti techniques with graphic design, typography, and fine art, resulting in a style that is both striking and thought-provoking. Their art often features bold, black-and-white imagery accompanied by philosophical or political messages. One of Cyrcle's most notable works is their mural on the exterior of the Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles, which depicts a human figure holding a blackbird and the phrase "We Never Die" in bold lettering. The mural, which was created as part of the hotel's "Artists in Residence" program, has become a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. In addition to their graffiti work, Cyrcle has also created art installations and exhibited their work in galleries around the world. Their art has been featured in publications such as Juxtapoz and Complex, and they have worked with brands such as Nike and Red Bull. Cyrcle's work has been lauded for its unique blend of street art and fine art, and for its ability to convey complex messages through simple imagery and text. Through their art, the collective seeks to challenge viewers to question their own beliefs and to see the world in a new way.
Totym Limited Edition 5-Color Silkscreen on 290gsm Coventry Rag Fine Art Paper by Cyrcle Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. "The piece was created during our recent travels to Europe, specifically in Vienna, Austria 2014. It is the last piece of the OVERTHRONE! theme. We are pleased with marriage of concept and composition as well as the color theory/balance. The piece was a digitally created design paying homage to pre-computer, traditional graphic design. The concept is rooted in breaking down mythologies, and overthrowing power.We wanted to create the final piece of art for the OVERTHRONE! campaign, ending with this print. The design suggests the infinite nature of mythologies of the mind and the power they wield." - Cyrcle
Between The Lines Limited Edition 4-Color Hand-Pulled Silkscreen Print on 290gsm Coventry Rag Fine Art Paper by Cyrcle Graffiti Street Artist Modern Pop Art. "Nothing exists is a philosophical quandary, a statement comprised of absolute polarities, in which its meaning is inherently dependent on one\'s perception. This composition presents us with the opportunity to think critically. Whether abstract or rational this contradiction confronts us with a perplexing challenge, testing both our beliefs and knowledge. Somewhere between something and nothing exists a space of uncertainty. This moment is immeasurable, yet more substantial than that which is tangible. Nothing exists, it is waiting to be defined. Questioning this requires faith and fact. The more we understand that nothing is something, we realize that nothing exists.." - Cyrcle
