World of Vandals // Soon at L’appartement
Opening on May 2nd – From 6pm to 9:30PM. Meet the artists
His hyper-realistic oil paintings invite us to meet the world of graffiti. In his portraits on a background of tags and materials, the artist sheds light on the illegal practice of vandal graffiti, very present on the walls of our cities. He pays a beautiful tribute to graffiti. Artists caught in the act or simple curious who pose in front of doors covered with paint? We wonder who are the characters who live in his paintings. Craquelures and wear restored almost photographically, overlays of colors and signatures, Clezio paints with a hand of master small parts of our cities and graffiti lovers.
His favorite medium is wood, which he assembles, cuts and paints with great technical dexterity despite his young age. Coming from the world of graffiti, L’insecte is a great adept of typography, especially letters inspired by old school graffiti of the 90s. He use simple and refined lettering, effective and readable by all. He plays with symbols of a wild and free graffiti. Cars, trains, vans, become his subjects of inspiration and the restitution of his experience in the world of vandal artists.
Opening on Wednesday, May 2 from 18h and in the presence of artists. As usual, places are limited, thank you to indicate your presence 🙂
