Presentation

The Geisha is an artist, accurate translation from Japanese. Fantasy for the West, refined cultural representation for Asia, Geisha is still controversial and will most likely remain.

Amey has chosen to deal here all the complexity of women, the influence of the image and the clash of cultures. With the tag and graff artist addresses the unstructured side of the West and the free expression of women, as opposed to the ingrained culture of the geisha whose white face hides imperfections and provides a submissive woman, educated and discreet .

In Japan, white symbolizes geisha "purity" black "beauty" and red "Youth", we finally very close to Western ideals .The graffiti Amey express revolt, penalties and joys, each canvas has a secret kept by text that tells a reverse writing.

Confrontation of cultures and techniques (fingerprints, bombs, graffiti, brushes, stencils), Asia and the West meet to try to glimpse "the woman."
