L'Atlas, Dain, Banksy, Obey... at the Lebenson Gallery
The Lebenson Gallery presents until September an exhibition entitled "Art on Paper" with several U.S., English and French urban artists, such as Dain, Banksy, Obey, L'Atlas, or Pure Evil and Klaus Guingand. As the name suggests it, the paper work is in the spotlight, gluing, assembly of pictures, prints, with a particular universe for each artist.
The opportunity to discover the work of the New York artist Dain which features Hollywood actresses of the '40s and '50s, playing with time and placing them in the modernity.
Pure Evil, English street artist and his dark world as here with this weapon set on a black background and made with a part of a plan of Hackney. Very cultural area in London, Hackney is also reputed to be the deadliest district of London, which earned him the nickname "Murder Mile" the title of the work.
Also a dark world with a portrait of Elizabeth Taylor on a red background, with black hair and a face drawn in blue with a blue line that runs like a tear from the right eye of the actress. A work of Pop Art style referring to Andy Warhol. Entitled "Richard Burton's Nightmare," this portrait refers in particular to the two successive marital failures between the two actors.
Banksy and his images with a dark humor and its anti-capitalist messages, anti-militarist, always in reaction against the system as these two works showing a critique of consumer society, intitled "Trolley Hunters" and "Soup Can".
Are also present, L'Atlas with his prints representing a black and white circular labyrinth, Shepard Fairey and a poster of the guitarist Johnny Ramone, and Klaus Guingand and its American dollar expressing a critic of the art market, and of the market value of works sometimes emptied of their meaning and their message, and many other artists such as Eine or Wildcat Will.
