Detroit's BORF is the name to drop in urban art circles. A multi-talented artist with impeccable graffiti credentials, the 25 year-old makes philosophical and often insurrectionary work in a sensitive, realist style. His Rothko's Modern Life series of paintings combine traditional graffiti with colours inspired by the mid-20th century master's instantly recognisable multiform pieces: never has the generation gap been bridged quite so poignantly.
