Second exhibition sale proposed by the Brest gallery, 120 works by local, national and international artists accumulate on the walls of an exhibition dedicated to street art. Conferences, private visits and workshops for schoolchildren are also scheduled until July 23, 2022.
19 artists and 120 works
These are 19 artists honored by the gallery Le Comoedia, from Brest (Finistère), to dust off the ideas received about street art.
Incipient or recognized in the art world, names from various horizons are mixed in a large exhibition, where the works sweep away many clichés about urban art. Uncompromising graphics, consummate techniques, the gallery showcases accomplished artists, old masters of street art.
Dominating the scenery, 18 skateboard decks were created and illustrated especially for the Comoedia by 9 artists. Next, works by Miss Tic, CyKlop, L’Atlas and Xkuz join those of local artists. We find in particular Pakone and his Japanese cherry trees, as ephemeral as the walls he paints them on.
An emblematic figure of street art in Brest, Royalti exhibits his photographs embedded in lacerated posters. The South Finistère, L’Outsider, which exhibits in Paris, Geneva or Berlin, stops in Brest, with its absorbing universe, created from its first inspirations.
Tom Geleb, after November 11
For his part, Tom Geleb presents “Teva”, a character full of love, with a Tahitian name, which his mother, of Tahitian origin, would have liked to give him, a semantic mix between “great traveler” and “rain”. “.
Freed from his heart after the November 11 attacks in Paris, the native of Brest splashed it on the walls of the capital. “I was 100 meters from the attacks when it happened. Two days later, it is this character that I managed to draw. », he says. Today, Teva rides on walls, her hearts escaping from an eye, a hand or a lip. “I needed to spread love. »
Until July 23, 2022. Exhibition “Street Art” at the Galerie Le Comoedia, 35, rue du Château in Brest.
