Le M.U.R is
an association founded in 2003 by Jean
Faucheur, emblematic character of the French urban art and one of the ADDICT Gallery’s artists.
born in the Bronx in 1961. Since the age of
13, he puts his mark, “his blaze” on New
York’s trains. By making the underground in motion, CRASH had imposed the originality of
his style stemming from hip hop culture to the world’s largest collection, from
MoMA in New York to the Groningen
Museum in Netherlands.
CRASH will honour us in investing for the first time the famous association’s billboard situated at the corner of Oberkampf’s street and Saint Maur’s street in Paris, in the 11th district. Saturday, April 7th, from 16:00 to 19:00, he will carry out a live performance that already promises to be memorable. This is a unique opportunity to see the artist at work, recognised by his peers to be one of the pioneers of graffiti art. With all the energy we know about him, he will perform a unique and ephemeral work on this “wall” of 3m x 8m which has already seen parades of well-known names of street art in these past years.
7 days later, Saturday April 14th, ADDICT Gallery will by glad to reveal, in its new area John CRASH Matos’s new exhibition “Study in Watercolours” which will put on light a new facet of his production till now little shown in France.
For the fans of urban art, April showcases one of the most illustrious representatives off the graffiti culture and post-graffiti: John CRASH Matos !!
