Crushing Colors

Brussels From February 19, 2021 to March 14, 2021

Presentation
CRUSHING COLORS brings together two figures of the Street Art movement.

COPE2, from the first generation of New York artists. A legend of movement, with its raw and authentic style. PRO176, from the Parisian writing of the 1990s. Today it affixes its majestic anamorphoses both on the walls and on the canvases. A mixture of two continents, two generations and two artistic invoices to testify to the richness of this multidisciplinary movement which does not cease to develop, anchoring itself deeply in our time.

A world of colors unfolds in the works of the two artists. Influenced by various contemporary aesthetics such as Hip - Hop, graffiti, comics, or even science fiction films, each one expresses itself in an explosion of bright colors. The abstraction of COPE2 bears witness to the street, to New York in the 80s / 90s.

A clever mix of lettering, symbols, colors and materials overlap, as if each canvas were a section of the wall. While PRO176's explosive palette, drawn from the comic and futuristic universe, leads him towards complex anamorphoses. He travels on the canvas with a confident brushstroke and builds his distorted characters, sometimes double and sometimes truncated. He invites us to find the meaning of reading his pictorial language in a disturbing graphic dance.

These two artistic worlds stemming from urban art come together to form a unique exhibition in Brussels. From February 20 to March 14 at the Galerie Martine Ehmer, 200 rue haute - 1000 Brussels.
