FARMINGTON — Based on the dynamics of graffiti without the letters found in graffiti, the work of aerosol artist Tim Clorius and graphic artist Matt W. Moore is now on exhibit in the University of Maine at Farmington Art Gallery at 246 Main St.

Following an opening reception held Tuesday evening, the exhibit runs from March 20-25 and March 31 to April 5. The gallery is open from noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday and is free to the public.

Eight colorful panels create the 8-foot by 20-foot piece named “Free Form Flow: A Celebration of Collaboration.”

Panel by panel, the artists put up the exhibit Tuesday afternoon. They have collaborated on works for the past 10 years, Clorius said. 

For him, the piece represents an abstract flow based on his love of graffiti only without the normal lettering of graffiti, he said. He wants artists to invent and name their own style as the artists did here, free-form style, he said.

Clorius was born and raised in Germany and received his education in fine arts and painting from the School of Visual Arts in New York and the Maine College of Art in Portland, where he now lives and works as a painter.

Moore is the founder of the MWM Graphics, a Portland-based design and illustration studio. He works across disciplines as can be seen in his colorful digital illustrations, free-form paintings and aerosol art.

Both have exhibited nationally and internationally.
