STREET ART AT ESPACE DALÍ

FROM 11 SEPTEMBER 2014 TO 15 MARCH 2015

Polymorphic, explosive, rebel, bewildering, funny, unusual, non-conformist, popular: description of the Dalinian method or that of the Street Art? Beyond the creative process, what brings these creators close to one another is their unique way of revealing the world: provocative, iconoclastic and wild. Just like Dalí, street artists are limitless when it comes to their sources of inspiration and convictions, the materiel and the mediums they use.

About twenty urban artists have met the challenge. In dialogue with the works exhibited at Espace Dalí, each of them created an artwork which dares to confront the surrealist universe with the vocabulary and the codes of urban art: painting, stencil, design, light painting, sound and installation.

Akiza, Artiste Ouvrier, Fred Calmets, Codex Urbanus, Hadrien Durand-Baïssas, Jadikan, Jérôme Mesnager, Les King’s Queer, Kool Koor, Kouka, Levalet, Thomas Mainardi, Manser, Nikodem, Nowart, Paella, Pioc PPC, Sack, Speedy Graphito, Valeria Attinelli, Zokatos. http://daliparis.com/en/exhibitions/exhibition/1/Street-art-at-Espace-Dali
