Over the last twenty years, Eko's idiosyncratic characters and letterforms have melded into a single, more abstract aesthetic. A meeting of landscape and sentience, his compositions imply familiar (letter) forms without ever wholly revealing their origins. Balanced, leaning, tottering and teetering: sometimes in motion, at others firmly rooted to terra firma. Eko's pared-back palette and use of line seem to suggest something of both ancient Britain and 70's psychedelic underground comics simultaneously.
