STREET ART & BESTIARY
ADD FUEL / FAITH XLVII / FRANCK NOTO / PHILIPPE BAUDELOCQUE / PRI BARBOSA
Bom dia Street Art
EDITO #74 | December – January 2024
Looking for sunshine in the heart of winter, we set our sights on a major Street Art destination: Portugal.
Lisbon has become a beacon of urban culture and prides itself on its innovative scene and dynamic artists such as Add Fuel, Bordalo II et Vhils. Last October, the city hosted a new edition of the Iminente festival, which builds bridges between different expressions of urban culture while encouraging creative encounters.
Add Fuel reinterprets the ancestral art of Portuguese azulejos, spreading his variant of Urban Art in streets and galleries around the world, while Brazilian artist Pri Barbosa advocates for women’s rights.
Of course, Street Art takes yet other forms. Faith XLVII draws her inspiration from her nomadic lifestyle expressed in a constant interplay of light and shadow. French artists Frank Noto and Philippe Baudelocque express themselves through very different worlds: one in search for abstract forms and the other through his urban cosmic bestiary. Many street artists like to explore animal themes, depicting panthers, sharks, elephants, horses, and other beasts on the walls of our cities, as a symbol of nature reclaiming urban space.
Back in Paris, we are delighted to tell you that the exhibition Seth se la joue at the Musée en Herbe is prolonged until 12 May 2024, and that Seth will invade the Louvre district with a monumental sculpture and an exhibition of 22 giant mural photographs.
Last but not least, we are pleased to announce that we will be at the District 13 art fair (Hôtel des Ventes Drouot in Paris) from 12 to 14 January 2024.
Street Art, an urban bond.
