« Residence » Exhibition, Blo-Jaw-Kan – Villa Alliv, Marseille (FR)


For its new exhibition, the Villa Alliv invites Jaw, Kan and Blo, three members of the graffiti crew DMV (Da Mental Vaporz), to come and settle in the Villa. The exhibition will open its doors to public on 29th April for three weeks.
The artists will display their paintings made from a collaborative work, created in situ in the course of the month of April. They will unveils six hands painting techniques, a real pictorial blending.
For this exhibition, the artists have implemented no premeditated work techniques which foster the effects of the improvisation. Their instinctive and instantaneous method brings together surrealism, abstraction and image destructuring.
While Blo and Jaw create a painting with shapes and colours which result from an instinctive gesture, Kan makes the symmetry of it with his pointillist diagram and then covers it with a misty filter. The resulting image creates an optical illusion, the superposition of the coats reveals a surrealist landscape.
The huge art installation sets up chaotic shapes that sculpt the space; the different rooms talk to appropriates the paint each other, the place.
