SAMBRE (work in progress)
Since January of this year 50 of the world’s most prominent street artists have left their mark on Les Bains, a rundown nightclub in Paris.
After unsuccessfully trying to save the building, owner Jean-Pierre Marois and gallery owner Magda Danysz began inviting artists like Sambre, Futura, and Space Invader to make work in the space. Slowly the place has been filled with art.
Next week renovations on the building will commence, and all the incredible work will be destroyed. I’ve included my favourite pieces from Les Bains below!
Parisian artist Yué Wu produced 60 hand-painted bottles for the launch of Absolut Art-Stream. The bottles were photographed and placed in sequence, and the result is a gorgeous animation. I have to say, I know quite a few creative people and out of all of them Yué may be the most talented. Watch the video below!
My good friend Yue Wu has taken over Le Salon (Atelier Galerie) and has been drawing people for two weeks! I really wish I was in Paris for this! If you are, here’s the Facebook Event. It wraps up in two days but you might still be able to book a session!
Yue’s drawn some famous faces, Busy P, Breakbot – take a look below! PS I stole all these images from his Instagram, follow him @wuyue5.
Artists Kyle Field, Nathaniel Russell, and Alia Shawkat (yes, Maeby from Arrested Development) have been staying in the countryside in France making work especially for the show! Danielle Rubi, a talented photographer in her own right, curated the show.
Whole bunch of sneak peek photos below!
