Paris, 20 September 2012. Art Media Agency (AMA).
The Musée de la Poste will organise from 28 November 2012 to 30 March 2013 an exhibition dedicated to urban art: “Au-delà du Street Art” (Beyond Street Art). Eleven international artists will be involved.
The exhibition “Au-delà du Street Art” begins with some historical points about this movement, giving details about the birth of this artistic medium in France, showing as well photographs of Street Art pioneers such as Ernest Pignon-Ernest and Gérard Zlotykamien. Then the creations of the eleven artists gathered for this occasion are being shown. Visitors will be able to admire works by Banksy, C215, Dran, Invader, L’Atlas, Ludo, Mis.Tic, Rero, Shepard Fairey, Swoon and Vhils.
Street Art is a contemporary art movement that developed over the years. The works shown will perfectly illustrate this art’s technicality and diversity. Six artists insisted on creating a special installation for the occasion, such as Miss.Tic and Ludo.
Their creations belong to various universes and deal with various issues. The public will therefore discover many facets of Street Art, from Invader’s pixelisation to Stephard Fairy’s advertising omnipresence, and Banksy, enigmatic living legend whose identity is kept secret.
Stencil, aerosol painting, Sellotape®, charcoal and many other materials have been used for these unusual works, showing Street Art is indeed a multifaceted artistic movement.
