Roughly based in Adelaide Australia, Vans the Omega has been creating & painting letterforms for over two decades, which has seen him, travel around the globe consistently since 2000. Most of his influences have come from ancient scripts, Architecture, engineering, nature & the idea of movement or balance.
Recognised for his attention to detail & search for perfection within letter structure, technique & life has put Vans the Omega in the spot light worldwide & helped to advance the way in which the art form is painted along side his other TMD members & extended family of writers around the planet.
Currently the mix of sharp highly technical machine like shapes, seemingly impossible patterns mixed with a traditional graffiti aesthetic based on sound foundations are blending to produce new innovative works which continue to push the boundaries on a world scale & propel his own desires to reinvent & perfect his craft on a daily level.
Well versed in a number of disciplines from Design, Photography, Clothing & moving image keeps the ideas & endless possibilities rolling inside this artists head with no end in sight. Stay tuned for the next two decades of progression.
Tonight’s random experiment. Wanted to paint a water colour for the first time but don’t have water colour paint. My mind simply says just add heaps off water to regular acrylic and go for it!! Doesn’t work but turns out all good in the end. #lovehaterelationshipwiththis #neongolden
If I can direct your attention to #fukushimareactors for 1 minute. #makenoiseforjapan In the latest crisis to strike the Fukushima-Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan, operator Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) has discovered that 300 tons (nearly 72,000 gallons) of highly radioactive water has leaked from a holding tank into the ground over the past month.
The development comes on top of TEPCO’s admission last month that an estimated 300 tons of radioactive groundwater, which picks up small amounts of contamination when it flows through the damaged reactor buildings, has been leaking into the Pacific Ocean every day. (See related story: “Fukushima’s Radioactive Water Leak: What You Should Know.”)
The new storage tank leak presents a different and potentially more serious problem than the ongoing groundwater flow leaks. The water from the leaking tank is so heavily contaminated with strontium-90, cesium-137, and other radioactive substances that a person standing less than two feet away would receive, in an hour’s time, a radiation dose equivalent to five times the acceptable exposure for nuclear workers, Reuters reported. Within ten hours, the exposed person would develop radiation sickness, with symptoms such as nausea and a drop in white blood cells.
