Jerry Inscoe (USA)

At first glance, Jerry Inscoe’s work appears to be a formal extension of a Deconstructivist style of typography. Letters are fragmented and sheared, stretched and re-formed with precision. It’s a science of Postmodern typographic abstraction, one that is characterized by unpredictability and controlled chaos. Born out of the mid-eighties Graffiti scene in Washington DC, Jerry’s work evolved over the years and matured, shifting from the early New


York-influenced models to a more abstract and idealistic take on what Graffiti could be.

He incorporated aspects of his undergraduate design education and a myriad of other infuences into his work, including architecture and industrial design. This infused Jerry with the desire to create highly original work that did not conform to the aesthetic standards of traditional street art.
