L’ART DANS LA PEAU
What happens when street art tells art and cultural history? Speedy Graphito is renowned for his unique visual language juxtaposing emblematic images of art and culture. Kolly Gallery is proud to present Speedy Graphito’s series L’Art Dans La Peau from May 6 to May 11, 2019.
Breaking the boundaries between classical modernism, pop and street art Speedy Graphito mixes and remixes the various visual languages into personal reinterpretations. His recent creations are fascinating, elegant and archaic. The series pays tribute to the women who inspired great artists such as Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso and Tom Wesselmann. Léger had a very distanced approach to his female portrays whereas Picasso gained considerable experience with various women, within his lively romantic life. The painter Wesselmann chose the nudes as his enduring subject in his career. As usual in Speedy Graphito’s art works, the mixture and combinations of different iconic visual languages is the key feature. He considerately reinterprets iconic images of women in very attuned color compositions.
