The artist and WeActivist tells Dazed about his exhibition at WeSC's Carnaby Street flagship
Based in Sweden, artist and illustrator Moley Talhaoui creates works that are sometimes symbolic, sometimes abstract. Last night at the closing view of his exhibit Epizelos (which runs until 21st December) at WeSC's Superlative Space on Carnaby Street, the creative explained what lurks beneath the surface of his work. Talhaoui is an ambassador for the brand, the perks of which are friendship with a group of multi-discipline creatives, from musicians to skaters, and the opportunity to dress in his choice of the label's garms.
"The core of this exhibition is anxiety disorder and joy. A mixture of good things/events related to bad experience that generates traumatic feelings. The paintings and drawings are based on flashes from surreal dreams with clear object/environments that's connected to real life events.
The best thing [about being a WeActivist] is that every one who is part of WeSC takes care of one another, the doors are open. It's like a secular family. "
