"Deuce 7 (also known as Deuce Seven, Twenty Seven, 27) is the pseudonym of an American artist based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Deuce 7 started working as a street artist in the 1990s in Minneapolis. Since 2006 has been exhibiting work in a gallery in Minneapolis and later in New York City, Seattle, and other major cities. Deuce 7 uses aerosol paint, one-shot, and oil bars to create intensely colorful, spidery images of a variety of subjects which he refers to as "stories", which include characters he has met on his travels, romantic interests, trains, cityscapes, as well as purely expressive, surrealist images.
His fine art pieces carry the design hallmarks of his street style and are also typically rendered with a one-shot, ink, watercolor, and/or enamel spray paint. Some pieces utilize mixed media including masks, found objects, and baroque moldings. His pen and ink drawings frequently evoke stark, decaying cityscapes of crumbling tenement buildings patrolled by strange vehicles and airborne creatures."
