American artist James Marshall and Amsterdam-based former graffiti maestro Boris Tellegen have this month come together in London for Dalek & Delta - a show that innovately illustrates and brings out both men's work through the comparison with each other.

Marshall (aka Dalek), who originally trained under Takashi Murakami, comes to the table with several expansive canvases, layered with meticulous sheets of geometric shapes and high-colour forms.

Tellegen � or Delta as he prefers to be known - draws more from his street art lineage, creating architectonic, block-like forms and adapting three-dimensional sculptural sensibilities to his canvas-based brief. Textured and tonal, the pieces stand in delicate contrast to Dalek�s Missoni-style patterns.

Taking shape in London�s Elms Lesters Painting Rooms, Dalek & Delta�s subtle agenda shines through the geometric canvases � the differences in both artist�s works come dexterously blurred, producing a coherent, yet vaguely jarring whole.
