« London » Lithograph

« This artwork « London » is part of my work on the riots in the world. At the time of these riots, I was extremely disturbed by the violence that came along with it. Who are these young people who have nothing to lose and ready to do anything? Including setting fire in London. If I had grown up with them, could I have a join them in their fight? The riots fascinate me and terrify me at the same time. Pointillism tedious process that I practice allows me to ponder all these questions… I also try on the other hand to pay tribute to the wonderful work of these photo reporters present during these events, and thus get inspiration from their works. » Kan

Fort du succès du Festival Rose Béton, l’art urbain revient dans le paysage Toulousain, pour la 4éme édition de l’Exposition Mister Freeze.

LINK
A French group show in Brussels

They are seventeen
Seventeen French artists, among the most intense of the European Art Scene, answered the call of the sculptor-curator Jak Espi.

Otherworldly paintings signed Charlelie Couture passed by an historical figure like Jérôme Mesnager or young masters of the SpraycanArt such as Brusk, Kongo BomK, Mist or Blo, the collective experience baptised LINK, brings a fragment of their creative strength alive, in the heart of the Belgian capital.

The curator
Jack Espi is born on 10th December 1966 in Salon de Provence. He lives and works in Pelissanne in the Provence, France.
No-limit artist Jak mastered resin. A modern material meeting its numerous influences, from illustration till Graffiti passing by the free figuration of the American Pop movement.

It is the first time the man takes on the organisation of such an ambitious exhibition: « it is a 100% hexagonal selection that will be seen at Art Thema Gallery » says the artist.. « I like the idea of highlighting a real delegation of our hexagonal talents in Belgium. This curating is a cross bridge between Paris and Brussels. A red wire around our love for sharing friendship and pleasure. More than ever these two countries share a common history, artistically and culturally and even more. Each artist will present 3 to 4 freely self-selected works.

The gallery
Art Thema Gallery, a modern and contemporary art company for more than 30 years, is currently running an a-typical exhibition space of 100M2 in an historical building in the heart of Brussels, between the ‘ Mont des Arts’ and ‘ La grand Place’. By offering this space with its dynamic team to promote the exhibition of LINK it unveils an opening to new artistic horizons as represented by this group of inspired and vibrant French artists.

Seventeen ambassadors of the hexagonal creative scene
Because LINK is a free card, an open and instinctive invitation: « historic vandals, wild abstractors or young talent of Urban Art… Whether masters of Graffiti or of contemporary sculpture, the seventeen ambassadors of this show will be the echo of the French artistic vibrancy in Brussels and beyond.

LINK is an exhibition realized with the support of Fermax. Fermax is a spanish entreprise leading the audio and video entry and control systems. In 2012, its headquarters in Valence changed into a huge (1 200 sqm) urban art show room, that became a reference among connaisseurs. Today, Fermax continues sponsoring manifestations in countries it’s established in. Fermax brings together technological innovations with young creations, while demonstrating its commitment as a socially responsible entreprise.

Link, from 15th September until 15th October 2016 feat Charlelie Couture, Arnaud Puig, Blo, BomK, Brusk, Cedrix Crespel, ColorZ, Éric Liot, Espi, FenX, Jaw, Jérôme Mesnager, Kan, Kongo, Kurar, Lilliwenn, Mist.

/// New Wave ///
Avant tout collectionneurs passionnés, depuis de nombreuses années nous nous sommes intéressés aux acteurs majeurs du mouvement de l’art urbain. En créant la galerie, nous nous sommes attachés à présenter les mouvements principaux des années 80. Figuration libre, figuration narrative… C’est tout naturellement que nous avons intégré dans notre ligne directrice les artistes issus du Street Art. Ce mouvement avant commencé dans les années 70 aux États-Unis, puis est rapidement arrivé en France. Il nous a fait découvrir des artistes comme Speedy Graphito, Miss Tic, John Matos Crash, Jonone… L’art de la rue s’est aujourd’hui institutionnalisé. Ces artistes précurseurs sont aujourd’hui bien inscrits dans le paysage de l’art contemporain et il est évident qu’ils ont ouvert un grand chapitre dans le livre de l’histoire de l’art ! Ces œuvres, que nous pouvions voir dans les rues des plus grandes villes, sont aujourd’hui présentes dans les musées, les centres culturels et les galeries. Ces lieux ont eu l’audace de proposer en avant-première ces pépites artistiques à leurs collectionneurs. Il faut compter aujourd’hui avec une jeune génération et c’est ce que nous voulons vous proposer lors de cette nouvelle exposition « New Wave ». Cette nouvelle vague nous fait part de ses inquiétudes et de ses doutes au travers d’œuvres souvent ironiques, déjà d’une grande maturité et avec une technique parfaitement maîtrisée. Ce sont donc de jeunes talents que nous sommes ravis de vous proposer et qui sont nos réels coups de cœur : Gris1, Kan, Kurar, MadC, Monkeybird et Cleon Peterson. Des artistes à suivre avec déjà un beau parcours et que nous sommes ravis de mettre en avant aujourd’hui pour cette nouvelle exposition.

Masters: Urban & Street Art – Galerie Laurent Strouk, Paris (FR)

Urban and Street Art artists are leaving the streets to exhibit in the Galerie Laurent Strouk from June 1 to July 15, 2016.

« This event aims to bring together major works of artists, French and international, iconic URBAN STREET ART, from the early 80s to the present. It will include the works of the following artists:

BANKSY, Jean-Michel BASQUIAT, BLADE, BRUSK, CRASH, DONDI WHITE, DFACE, DA CRUZ, FAILE, Shepard FAIREY, FENX, FUTURA 2000, Keith HARING, INVADER, JEF AEROSOL, JONONE, JR, KAWS, KAN, MUSH, RAMMELZEE, RERO, RETNA, REVOK, SEEN, Kenny SCHARF, TILT, ZEPHYR, ZEVS.

Urban-and-street-art-flyer

Urban art, whether celebrated or decried, is now considered an art form in itself. Represented in galleries, museums, and auction sales, it is now essential and promised a future. The aesthetics, provocation, poetry, political message, everything is there. This artistic movement that takes forms as diverse and varied as sculpture, stencil, graffiti, poster, mosaic, installation or painting is distinguished by an unprecedented, forceful approach: it communicates with the general public on socially relevant themes, while maintaining a certain aesthetic. Sometimes echoing childhood and games as the works of INVADER or KAWS, sometimes soliciting reflection on the socio-political context as the works of Shepard FAIREY (supporting poster campaign for the presidential election of Barack OBAMA) or BANKSY, urban art is both a call to action and to reconsideration.

It also heralds a new era in the world of Art. It is no longer necessary to enter a museum or gallery to access to culture: now you only have to walk down the street. The occupants of public space, in encountering these works are called upon to remember these visual signatures and questions. Urban art is no longer ephemeral but gradually defining the History of Art. »

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

Residence-villa-alliv-blo-jaw-kan-flyer

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.
