Szabotage signature Koi Szabotage’s infamous koi tag was born out of a sense of empowerment. The artist took a discouraging experience and evolved it in to a celebration of perception and proudly embraced the koi as his street signature. Szabotage has taken the koi as his emblem, a symbol he has come to identify with himself. “The koi jumping out of water is jumping out of its comfort zone, from water to air. It is enjoyment, it’s invigorating. There’s a sense of jubilation in its movement.” The koi has important symbolic meaning in traditional Chinese culture. The fish has a powerful and energetic life force, demonstrated by its ability to swim against currents and even travel upstream. Strong connotations Szabotage can relate to. Characteristics associated with the koi, such as courage and perseverance are reflected in his art, with its boldness, strong symbolism and powerful colour palette.
