French Artist Erico recently sent me some pictures of a series of works on paper he was working on, which he loosely titled “Suits”. We have shown some of Erico’s wall work in the past on the site with Antistatik and Orbit119. This is the first time showing some of his other Artwork, and i really like the direction he has started these works. Hopefully we can see them expand into some paintings in the future. Here is a brief quote from the artist describing the work.

“With up coming elections and all the media mashing that we will be fed, I marvel at “the political portraits” of future or past candidates, crispy clean, with (or without) the look of victory in their eyes. When the TV shuts off, the image is gone, and if you don’t understand much of what is going on, all that is left for you is the memory of someone in a suit with big plans for you in the making. Here are some portraits of people with big plans, faceless plans with strings attached. facets that you didn’t know existed. I don’t know if id vote for them. Which one would you vote for?”

New Walls LX One Remi Rough and Antistatik

Better late than never, here are a couple of walls from Late 2010. Mr Remi Rough and LX One where able to get together with Antistatik, and collaborate on a wall in Strasbourg. Its always interesting watching artists with similar yet different styles come together and collaborate on a wall. Really impressed with the outcome. I especially liked the use of negative space in the first mural, leaving some texture in the background was a nice touch. The second wall is a track side wall LX and Remi Rough knocked out, and again another great collaboration from the Agents of Change duo. I hadn’t seen many LX One walls before this, and i was impressed. Were looking forward to seeing some new work from all these guys this year. Stay Tuned.
