The work of Peterborough-based Urban Artist Kaine Kulczak, also known as Korp, employs multi-layered stencil techniques and marker pens to create utterly contemporary and frequently iconographic images. Guns and skulls and rock stars are all fair game for an urban artist but Kulczak also tackles architecture, portraits and urbanity too with skill and deference.
His stencil work displays a remarkable level of patience and an exceptional eye for detail. His use of text in many of the images belies a subverted playfulness and his marker work frequently explores his childhood experieces and how they have shaped his identity.
As well as book covers for The Dangers of Defferal and SELF he has also turned his hand to curating in recent years and is responsible for the 'Peterborough Young Carers Art Exhibition' and the ‘Its Yours Take It Peterborough’ events which attract art donations from around the world.
In 2012 Kulczak featured on the BBC Culture Show alongside Fin DAC and My Dog Sighs as part of the global art movement known as Free Art Friday.
