GRAFFITI & STREET ART
- KIDULT -
Hard to miss Kidult in Paris these days... Stickers and graffiti with his name have invaded our streets. More a graffiti artist than a street artist, he attacked last year several luxury brands, Agnès B, Céline, Hermès, Louis Vuitton... by tagging KIDDULT, LOVE or SK8 on their windows with a fire extinguisher filled with paint. Vandalism for some people but his approach makes sense. Denounce the exploitation of graffiti and street art by luxury brands that are unfamiliar to this world, and this for commercial purposes. But as he explains: "if these brands like graffiti, I only give them what they like" ...
Actions filmed and shown in this video where the artist explains his work.
His goal, disturb and thereby question and awaken consciences. A committed graffiti artist who uses tag as a free medium.
Lately it's around the Marais, Les Halles, Beaubourg, or the Rue Saint-Honoré that we find traces of his passage... Until his future actions...
