L’OUTSIDER

ABSTRACTION TYPOGRAPHIQUE 2

Deformation, assemblage and deconstruction of the letter: this is L’outsider. Kolly Gallery is excited to present the expressive new series of L’Outsider entitled Abstraction Typographique 2 from 21 to 26 September 2020.

For L’outsider the intention to deal with the letter is central. Same as the letter and its deformation as well as abstraction is inherent in the graffiti culture. The artist has always been fascinated by graffiti’s situations of illegality, which generate an intriguing tension between risk-taking and the realization of an artwork and moreover, between urgency, suddenness and mastery of gesture. So sometimes writers risks their lives without any guarantee of a result, the illegal and “vandal” dimensions of the practice strongly conditions the processes, which finally results in certain aesthetics. L’outsider experienced extreme and hostile situations, because of his artistic background, that led him to grasp the essence, to accept the errors and taste the unexpected. Finally, the accident can become an opportunity, which may result in an artistic masterpiece.
