ADDICT Galerie, for its inaugural exhibition, shares with us a foretaste of the coming program through a show by its Addictartists.

Style and glam, Pop and concrete mix up with the installations, wall drawings, paintings, animations, luminous atmospheres, and graphic momentum… 

With unobstructed view guaranteed, its colours and tone, its spontaneity and paradoxes. ADDICT Galerie directs about ten international artists in a fabulous setting. Each of the artists is more or less linked to the street and the pop art. As the best of his kind, WK Interact spreads on the walls, his both moving and ghostly presences. His huge and fugitive characters stroke the cymas and come off them black on white.

As a feminine echo to WK Interact’s creatures, those that populate Sophie Toulouse’s universe are always moving. With their curves and lines, the ethereal beings of this artist from Paris get us lost in their hair and other sensual volutes. As for Mark Dean Veca, he plays with the perspectives of the places he fills. His psyche-organic wall drawings and paintings appear as trompe-l’oeils that change the spectator’s point of view the space.  Olivier Kosta-Théfaine gives back the suburb its grandeur. Inspired by its negative clichés, he diverts subtly their literal meaning in order to make them more acceptable. Thus, the mouldings of the wealthy ceilings are drawn again with the flame of a lighter as makeshift rose, whereas the names of the suburban housing estates are piling up as herbariums loaded with poetry. Sigfried Jegard draws the same way he breathes, as if he was under hypnosis. His drawings tangle up endlessly and run through the walls and pages like a deaf contamination.

With Mo Maurice Tan’s king sized canvases; we are driven in a mechanic world, on the highways or in the heart of the metropolises. Known thanks to his action upon the urban world, Dan Witz has got a figurative practice as well. His canvases, as wild as fascinating, deal with human presence, setting night atmospheres more or less friendly, which protagonists are humans or animals that seem to have been raised as batteries.  Between the pattern and a certain abstraction, Samuel François uses symbols, codes and signs to perform. Linked to both graphic design and advertising aesthetic, Roman PAX Paloscia drives us in an acid pop world. Her paintings and animations are populated with teenage characters and phantasms.  Through this exhibition, the display cabinet of ADDICT Galerie becomes what liaises between indoors and outdoors, intimate and public.

This collective exhibition, as an urban odyssey, allows us to revisit Street Art through artists that revitalize it and reinvent endlessly.
