Un dessin est beau si la ligne est vivante – Exhibition Niort (Fr)

Here is one of the ink drawings I sent to the following exhibition in the beautiful city of Niort France. Winterlong gallery, which has been working with many excellent international artists for a number of years, has curated this really cool line up including this time the work of about 70 artists displayed at the Pilori Museum. I had the pleasure to work with Winterlong Gallery 4 years ago for an installation I did at the museum in collaboration with artist Kid Acne. The title ‘Un dessin est beau si la ligne est vivante’ is a quote by Jean Cocteau and refers to the theme of the exhibition: all works are drawings on paper.

Scratch started back in Kings Cross, London; in June ’96 as a hip hop inspired live production encompassing the global dynamics of b- boy culture. Scratch has travelled through London, Edinburgh, Brighton, Bristol, Gothenburg, Italia, Las Vegas, Australia, India & festivals far & wide. Scratch made it’s name in fuzing events that highlighted art in equal headline to music with often first time shows / exhibitions for established players.

SCRATCH EXPO 17 continues the ethos behind the event telling the story through sonic & visual mediums from ’96 and beyond. The show divides the galley space in to two with a selection of international graffiti inspired abstrakt artists invited to display exclusive new works on canvas – all of whom have a relationship with Scratch through collaborations past and present.

Guests include, from Italy Moneyless, Sweden Disk (HSK), France EMA, Canada 123Klan, from the UK Shok1, Robi Walters, Remi Rough, Nonsinthetik, Inkie, Kid Acne, Etch, Solo One, Chu, Chum 101, from Scotland Derm, Many Styles Crew & Lyley plus a selection of creative designers, musicians, record labels & photographers from London, Japan & NYC following the on-going journey of Scratch.
