Group Exhibition with Seen, Crash, Quik, Jonone, Blek Le Rat, Obey, Miss Van, West, Space invader, Zevs, Futura, Blade. On the occasion of the publication of the book From Style Writing to Art: A street art anthology. Opening October 24th at Magda Danysz’ art gallery Paris.
Proud to fight for the recognition of Graffiti and Street Art as a major artistic movement, Magda Danysz publishes this fall an anthology about the History of this key artistic movement (388 pages, 200 illustrations, published by Drago and MnA Publishing).
The works of Seen, Crash, Quik or Blade show the historic sources of the street art. From the 70s they sprayed their names on the subways or walls of New York. Today, they are considered as the pioneers of this movement, the “Kings” as they were named back then. The 80s and 90s generation, embodied by Jonone, West, Miss Van, Space Invader or JR shows diversity in street art. These different ways of expression are the testimony of a real transition from the Style Writing to an artistic manifestation. Among them, Jonone was one of the first ones to choose to express himself on canvas from 1991. Concerning Space Invader, he distances himself with use of the mosaic for instance.
