John Matos Crash

Né en 1961 - Etats-Unis

BIOGRAPHIE

Crash ou John Matos, est un artiste du graffiti né dans le Bronx le 11 octobre 1961. Il est l’un des Protagoniste majeur de "l’Aerosol (R)evolution".

Il commence le Graffiti très jeune sur les trains New-Yorkais avant de s'exercer sur les toiles.

Il intègre dès 1983 la galerie Sidney Janis avant de faire son entrée dans les plus grandes collections mondiales du MOMA de New York au Stedelijk Museum d' Amsterdam.

Il apparait au grand public en co-produisant avec Keith Haring la campagne publicitaire, Peter Stuyvesant. Il se fait connaitre en France en participant à l’exposition 5/5 Figuration Libre, France-USA au Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris en 1984. Cette exposition mettait en regard le travail d’artistes tels que Basquiat, Boisrond, Combas, Keith Harring, Tseng Kwong Chi, Di Rosa… et John Matos Crash.

Dans un style proche des comics, avec toujours des couleurs flamboyante propres à la publicité, elles s’affirment comme pur produit du monde contemporain. Ils s’inscrit dans la filiation parfaite du Pop Art et hissent à nouveau cette présumée sous-culture au rang de « grand art ».
