Welcome Know Hope to START Studio


Over the past decade, Know Hope (pseudonym) has developed a visual iconography and language used to mirror real-life situations and observations, and document the notion of a collective human struggle.

By creating parallels between political situations and emotional conditions, there is an attempt to perceive the political process and dialogue as emotional mechanism, therefore making it a conduct that can be understood intuitively and not solely intellectually. These processes take place both indoors and outdoors, in the form of site-specific installations, murals and assemblages, combining ready-made materials, mixed media pieces, photographs and text. By placing these works in public spaces, Know Hope aims to make the separation between the emotional and political non-existent, and allow the viewers to see themselves in the larger context of their surroundings simply by recognizing each other.
