Magazine Description

In this issue

Here is a little behind the scene of this GRAFFITIART edition. This issue presents a fast-changing urban art scene we owe to the proliferation of techniques used by our artists. Our adventure starts with John Fekner’s political stencils in the New York of the early 80s, the place where everything begins. After that, the family line splits up in every direction. Niels Shoe Meulman keeps using canvas but manages to blend lettering and abstract expressionism. PichiAvo too proposes a bold crossbreeding of flop and Renaissance mannerism. Further in the issue, canvas is dropped and replaced by mixed media compositions. Bordalo II –with an exceptional exhibition in Paris–gives shape to a 3D bestiary made of accumulated waste. A childish approach prolonged by Sean Chao and Ufocinque. Chao’s mode of expression draws from the Czech miniature dioramas of the 50s. And Ufocinque metamorphoses urban environment with paper-cut monuments. Then Mark Jenkins and Tilt add up to this gallery. The first one reflects on city despair through mannequins that turn into still performances, and the second deconstructs and renews graffiti using plasterboard, a raw urban material. Finally, a focus on women in street art brings balance to this selection that we hope will be as exciting to read as it was to produce.
