Shaka - A Mouvement Anatomy

Paris From 9 March to 22 April 2017

Presentation
Shaka's third solo show at Galerie Lazarew! Present in urban art for nearly 20 years, Shaka (Marchal Mithouard) brilliantly combines influence from the streets (letterings, violence, colours) and a more classical studio work, in which he engaged himself from the start (oil painting on canvas, sculpture, bas-relief).

His inimitable style manifests itself in fragmented faces and bodies, as if they were wearing a mask or, on the contrary, as if they were skinned. Since 2007, volume plays an important role in his work: first through the bas-reliefs he blended in his canvas, then with monumental sculptures made of wood, and now bronze.

For this show, Shaka focuses on the transposition of myths in our contemporary era - especially the myth of Sysiphus - while continuing his work on movement. His characters are either in action or thrown off balance, as in his monumental canvas (190x270 cm) Carrousel, or in his portraits of Shock wave series.

We will also present the first bronze sculpture created by the artist.
