Calem Glover (b.1977)

KOR  |  ENG

Calem Glover, also known as Kingscribbler, and his artistic journey began in the '80s with the scribbles on notepads and phonebooks at home. Here, he felt a sense of order amongst the circles, diagonal lines, and other scribbles on these brown pages. Glover saw beauty in these everyday scribbles and took it upon himself to express them into art. Kingscribbler builds his world through what he calls, “Doodle-Expressionism”, and his experience in the ‘90s New York street-art scene gives his paintings a sense of speed and performance—the graffiti strokes and sliding, thin lines flowing together to create density. 

At times amidst the whirl of thoughts and chaos, we scribble aimlessly. This fundamental act of expressing deeper emotion forms the basis of Glover’s act. Through his scribbles, the artist channels into the myriad of emotions and subjects rooted in his upbringing and life clear of any exterior influence or motivation. His seemingly chaotic works rather demystifies and decodes the volatile and underlying emotions with clear, crisp colors and scribbly lines.

Underneath the veneer of childlike doodles lie an art form and an artist's vision who finds beauty in imperfection and embraces it with explosive energy and color.
