STIKKI PEACHES | Rebels with a cause | Solo Show Paris

Nextstreet Gallery is pleased to present the first solo show in Paris of the artist Stikki Peaches

 ABOUT  Satirical and ironic, Stikki Peaches’ works invite you to pause, analyze, and will likely leave you feeling nostalgic. Originally from Montreal, his singular style is as popular in galleries as it is on the walls of the world’s busiest metropolises. His father a tailor and his mother a designer, Stikki Peaches’ first creative endeavors were in fashion design, an industry that deeply influenced his artistic practice. As a child, he was surrounded by sketches and drafting patterns, which he happily collected, reassembled, and transformed with paint and pencils. His style is rooted in this spirit of reusing and recycling, where a myriad of techniques are combined to reveal the influential figures of his childhood. His vibrant compositions feature mythical characters, political leaders, and cultural icons: Batman, Elvis Presley, and Mozart coexist, creating a startling juxtaposition of themes and aesthetics.  Stikki Peaches sees art as an escape, an outlet that allows him to move away from what hinders his growth as an artist and as a human. His tagline “What if Art Ruled the World?” fits this context. This question echoes the artist’s stance, suggesting that conflicts and disasters affecting our society would have no basis if the world were governed by art. Through his works, Peaches invites the onlooker to contemplate the effect and importance of art. His practice aims ultimately to democratize it: by taking his practice to the streets and incorporating pop culture references, Stikki Peaches distances himself from elitism and abstruseness often associated with the contemporary art world. Striking, colourful, and iconic, his pieces are well suited to digital culture, which values bold visual content.  The Montreal artist’s works are found in various private collections in the United-States, Europe, and Canada. Since 2013, Peaches steps out of the studio to participate in Mural Fest, an annual event celebrating graffiti art in Montreal. In 2016, his piece entitled MO.Z. was selected to adorn Romeo Gin’s first edition of bottles. His works were also featured during a special event at the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec.

Le maître et l'élève

Voici un aperçu des influences de PichiAvo : le maître de la sculpture baroque italienne, Bernin, et l'enlèvement de Proserpine par Pluton. Une relecture moderne et poétique que nous proposent les deux artistes portugais.

PichiAvo, sacré duo

Avez vous déjà rêvé de la rencontre de l'art néoclassique et du street art ?

le duo prend la pose - 2017

PICHI & AVO ont réalisé cette étrange fusion, en Espagne, sur des murs depuis plusieurs années. Avec un travail sur l'anatomie digne des plus grandes collections d'art Antique, des scènes mythologiques et légendaires, Pichi & Avo déplacent réellement le musée dans la rue.

 

 Duo de choc en action&nbsp;

Duo de choc en action 

Par leur parti pris artistique, ils questionnent aussi  la notion de chef d'oeuvre dans l'histoire de l'art, en confrontant l'univers du graffiti et les modèles antiques. 

 

 

Démarrez l'année 2018 avec le solo show de SEE

La galerie NextStreet est heureuse de vous présenter un soloshow haut en couleurs de l'artiste français SEE, graffeur renommé des transports publics parisiens, qui a su s'imposer dans le monde du streetart.

SEE a débuté le graffiti en 1989 en taggant dans le RER A entre Nanterre et Saint Germain En Laye pour très vite s'attaquer aux métros de la capitale. Sans oublier les autres supports, trains, murs de lignes ou d'autoroutes. Depuis 2009, il se consacre aux toiles pour son plaisir.

Vernissage le 11 janvier, 23 rue des Tournelles, métro Bastille.

Sven TVC solo show

Gonna Stay

Sven, en collaboration avec Zeller - plexiglas

 

Du 30 novembre 2017 au 11 janvier 2018, la galerie NextStreet présente un artiste talentueux, Sven TVC. 

Sven est un artiste français né en 1988 à Mulhouse. Sa passion du graffiti est née à la suite d'un enchaînement de claques visuelles qu'il prend lors de ses nombreux voyages en train où il observe la multitude de dessins réalisés par les graffeurs sur les rails, les wagons et dans les gares. Après quelques rencontres sur la scène locale, il fait ses premiers pas dans le monde du graffiti.

Sa technique se caractérise par des lettres arrondies, appelée Flop ou Trow-up. Sven se veut lisible du plus grand nombre, et surtout apporter beaucoup de couleurs là ou il passe. Depuis quelques années, Sven se lance dans la toile, travaillant textures, superposition de couches, toujours en gardant ces lettres lisibles et arrondies. Il collabore également avec d’autres artistes pour toujours ramener le graffiti là ou l’on ne l’attend pas, comme sur des sculptures de Laurence Dréano ou David Zeller par exemple. 

Il fait partie du collectif TVC et SCHLAGER avec lesquels il organise des expositions, ou des installations.


From the 30th of november to the 11th of january, NextStreet gallery shows a talented artist, Sven TVC. 

Sven is a French artist born in 1988 in Mulhouse. His passion for graffiti was born as a result of a sequence of visual slaps that he takes during his many train journeys where he observes the multitude of drawings made by graffiti artists on rails, wagons and in railway stations. After a few encounters on the local scene, he takes his first steps in the world of graffiti.

His technique is characterized by rounded letters, called Flop or Trow-up. Sven wants to be readable of the greatest number, and especially to bring a lot of colors where it passes. For a few years now, Sven has embarked on the web, working with textures and layer layering, always keeping these letters legible and rounded. He also collaborates with other artists to always bring back the graffiti where we do not expect it, like on sculptures of Laurence Dréano or David Zeller for example.

He is part of the collective TVC and SCHLAGER with whom he organizes exhibitions, or installations.
