We’ve chosen to feature the art work by the amazing multi-media artisit TRXTR for our first issue of MASHED! homebrewing magazine for a couple of reasons. Firstly, we really love his work. A visual feast with a powerful message! And secondly, our hop farm is right next door to the fantastic couple that run Red Propeller Gallery, who represent the artist. So they’re very much rooted in our journey as a hop farm. We’ve shared one or two homebrews over the past couple of years, as you’ll imagine!

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Trxtr’s work questions whether dystopia is closer to reality than we realize. His signature multi-media approach to composition is dominant throughout, yielding strikingly chaotic imagery; a unique and contemporary style which he has pioneered by embracing the dual use of paint and digital rendering.
Trxtr explores a number of themes, the most dominant of those is the effects of the ever more prominent extreme portrayal of beauty and femininity, often used to influence public idolization of celebrity and thus corporate brainwashing, sorry, ‘branding’. This includes references to fashions’ infamous and controversial rebel queen, Kate Moss, portrayed alongside morphing images of the obsessive vanity of pop culture, Botox Brangelina and playboy plasticity.
