an abrasive relationship with Paris. His street art, once decried by the authorities, is now hung in the most fashionable galleries of Paris. When Olivier came round to talk to VINGT, it became clear from our discussions that his outwardly casual manner hides an artist who adores to play on this tension.

Over the years, we've learnt to be watchful of irony and humor in his work. On his website Olivier declares: "Je ne suis pas un Parisien, je suis un banlieusard, et je porte cette étiquette comme on porte une particule. Je suis un pur produit de la banlieue." Coming from Sartrouville, a Parisian suburb, Olivier decided to explore the world outside his "cité" taking art as his flag and the street experience as his muse.

For Olivier graffiti is a sport, if he was born by the beach he would surf. Graffiti is not a claim, nor has it any political dimension: it's simply the pure pleasure of writing on walls, illuminating and camouflaging his own style in the urban cityscape. Becoming an artist was a natural evolution of his passion. This "feeling" for graffiti art at main school spawned his first exhibition at "La Laiterie" (Strasbourg) in 1994.

Olivier low budget His artistic work, breaks down his impressions of city life into the gallery setting. He is well aware of the contradiction: A wall burned in a suburb ghetto is disgusting, but a ceiling burned in a trendy gallery is "so arty"!

He seems particularly amused by this apparent hypocrisy. Graffiti in a gallery suddenly becomes art, yet few of the public who buy these works and populate the galleries have ever set foot in the banlieue - a home to many street artists.

 

Entwicklung der Schablonen Kunst Ging aus von Paris, nach Straßburg und Köln, dann ganz Europa.

Thomas Baumgärtel

Thomas Baumgärtel (* 1960 in Rheinberg) ist ein deutscher Künstler, der auch unter dem Pseudonym "Bananensprayer" bekannt ist. Seine in Pochoir-Technik gesprayten Bananen, die an die "Velvet-Underground-Banane" von Andy Warhol erinnern,[1] sind an den Eingängen von etwa 4000 Kunstmuseen und Galerien sowohl in deutschen als auch internationalen Städten zu finden.


Banksy (vermutlich 1974 oder 1975 nahe Bristol, Großbritannien geboren) ist ein britischer Straßenkünstler. Seine Schablonengraffiti sind in Bristol sehr bekannt, er ist jedoch auch schon weltweit in anderen Städten aktiv geworden. Er bemüht sich, seinen Namen geheim zu halten, seine Bücher erscheinen unter dem Namen "Robin Banksy".

Banksy bedient sich der Taktiken der Kommunikationsguerilla insbesondere was seine Inspirationsquellen betrifft (wie z.B. der des frz. Pochoirkünstlers Blek le Rat) und der Adbusters, um eine alternative Sichtweise auf politische und wirtschaftliche Themen zu bieten. Er verändert und modifiziert dabei oftmals bekannte Motive und Bilder. Allerdings hat er auch schon Auftragsarbeiten für wohltätige Zwecke angenommen (z. B. Greenpeace).

Neben seinen Graffiti hängt Banksy auch eigene Arbeiten ungefragt in Museen auf. Sowohl im Londoner Tate Modern, New Yorker Museum of Modern Art, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, American Museum of Natural History, sowie im Louvre hingen 2005 unbemerkt seine Arbeiten. Im Mai 2005 wurde Banksys Version einer Höhlenmalerei, die einen jagenden Menschen mit Einkaufswagen zeigte, im British Museum gefunden.

Im September 2006 bearbeitete er das Debütalbum Paris von Paris Hilton und verteilte 500 Kopien der Fälschung in diversen britischen Plattenläden. Unter anderem zeigt ein Foto Hiltons Körper mit einem Hundekopf. Des Weiteren ist die Musik auf den CDs Eigenkompositionen von Banksy gewichen. Die Stücke bestehen aus schlichten Rhythmen mit Ausrufen Hiltons ("That's Hot!"). Ebenfalls im September 2006 installierte er eine Skulptur eines Guantanamo-Häftlings in einer Disneyland-Park-Attraktion.

Nachdem er im Dezember 2009 in London ein mehr als 20 Jahre altes Oldschool-Graffito in eines seiner Werke integrierte und es dabei teilweise übermalte, wurden einige Werke Banksys in der Stadt von Unbekannten umgestaltet oder übermalt. http://www.banksy.co.uk/


DZINE, Chicago - (Born. Carlos Rolon, Chicago Illinois 1970) Lives and works in Chicago, Continuing his investigation into Kustom Kulture and its relationship to art, sub cultures and the institution, Chicago-based artist Dzine has developed a unique practice creating work that contextualizes these diverse elements to develop his own language. The work addresses these issues through a lens of spirituality, beauty, desire, faith, folklore, and identity. Incorporating the ideals of craft making, appropriation and the baroque, the end result is mixture of sculpture, paintings, and installation. The juxtaposition and combination of the studio paintings, the appropriated and original kustom kulture sculptures result in hybrid artifacts that are beautifully crafted, aggressive, thoughtful, sexual, and strangely seamless. The artist seeks to change the rules concerning the final image by illuminating how the masculine can become delicate, how baroque can be minimal, and how rational can become emotional. The work is at once melancholic, excessive and exuberant, poised somewhere between celebration and regret. The result proves to be universal and painstakingly honest.

Dzine is a recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation award for Painting and Sculpture. In 2011 he was selected as the Spring Semester Kraus Visiting Professor of Art at Carnegie Mellon University. Solo Museum exhibitions include:Bass Museum of Art, Miami;Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis; Flint Institute of Arts, Michigan; Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico, San Juan;Museum Het Domein, Sittard, The Netherlands.

Museum group exhibitions include: TheBaltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead, United Kingdom; Brooklyn Museum of Art, New York; Museo del Barrio, NY and Pinchuk Art Centre, Kiev. In 2007 Dzine represented Ukraine as one of five artists in the 52nd Biennale di Venezia.


Doze Green, NY- Doze Green was born in 1964 in New York City to a creative family of artists and musicians. His urban background and involvement in the early hip-hop/graffiti movement of NYC in the late 70’s, early 80’s as one of the original b-boy members of the Rock Steady Crew, led him to transition from painting in the streets and subways to creating art for the gallery setting as well as public and private mural commissions. With early mentors such as Rammellzee, and a strong interest in creative exploration and experimentation, a wide range of influences have helped shape Green’s unique style, one that continues to evolve and engage. Audio of Green discussing his work along with a slideshow of his images were featured in a New York Times article about Jonathan LeVine Gallery in 2010. Recent projects include a large-scale mural during São Paulo fashion week in Brazil, as well as Crossroads of Humanity, a public mural commission measuring 20 x 80 feet, located at CityCenter in Las Vegas, Nevada. http://www.dozegreen.com/
Invader - Invader (born 1969) is a French urban artist who pastes up characters from and inspired by the 1978 arcade game Space Invaders game, made up of small coloured square mosaic tiles that form a space invader character mural. He does this in cities across the world, then documents this as an "Invasion", with books and maps of where to find each invader. Invader is responsible for perhaps the most recognizable street art stunt of the last decade. In a planet-wide war of attrition, the pixilated expansionist aliens from Space Invaders stalked the Earth once more, appearing everywhere from on the 'Hollywood' letters to Jacques Chirac's lapel. Invader started this project in 1998 with the invasion of Paris – the city where he lives and the most invaded city to date – and then spread the invasion to 31 other cities in France (such as Montpellier, Marseille, Avignon, Rennes, Bordeaux, Lille, Chartres, or Bastia…). London, Cologne, Geneva, Newcastle, Rome, Berlin, Lausanne, Barcelona, Bonn, Ljubljana, Vienna, Graz, Amsterdam, Bilbao, Manchester, Darlington, Istanbul are among the 22 other European cities which have been invaded. Throughout the world, São Paulo, Los Angeles, New York City, San Diego, Toronto, Bangkok, Tokyo, Katmandu, Varanasi, Melbourne, Perth and even Mombasa are now invaded with his colourful characters in mosaic tiles.


Mark Jenkins - Mark Jenkins ,* 1970 in Alexandria, Virginia- ist ein US-amerikanischer Künstler. Seine bekanntesten Werke sind Installationen im Straßenraum, die er aus Klebeband fertigt. Er lebt in Washington D.C. Jenkins’ erstes Kunstwerk dieser Art war eine Reihe von Abdrücken seines Körpers aus Klarsichtband, die er in den Straßen von Rio de Janeiro installierte (2003). Beim Storker-Projekt 2005 mit Sandra Fernandez platzierte er eine Reihe von „Babys“ aus Klebeband in verschiedenen Städten. 2006 begann Jenkins, die Skulpturen so einzukleiden, dass aus ihnen hyperrealistische Körper wurden (Embed Series).Gemeinsam mit Greenpeace arbeitete er 2008 an der Straßeninstallation „Plight of the Polar Bears“. Jenkins’ Straßenkunst nutzt die Straße als Bühne, auf der Passanten zu Akteuren werden. Viele seiner Installationen haben Sicherheitskräfte auf den Plan gerufen, die er ebenfalls als Mitspieler betrachtet.


Zevs, Paris - Zevs is an anonymous French street artist. He was an early and influential graffiti artist and active as a tagger in Paris in the 1990s. He is named after a regional train, Zeus, that almost ran him over one day he was down in the metro. Working with other French artists in the second half of the 1990s like André and Invader, Zevs has been among the prominent figures who pioneered the French street art scene. By the end of the 90's he became known for his poetic drawings of shadows in Paris, shortly after the departure of Facundo Newbery from Paris. Later he 'bombed' models on the billboards between the eyes. Though his interventions have been very popular, it has been discussed in France whether it is vandalism or art. In 2008 Zevs had his first major survey exhibition at the classical art museum the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek in Copenhagen, Denmark. His work was displayed alongside masterpieces in the museum's permanent collections such as Edouard Manet's The Absinthe Drinker and Auguste Rodin's The Thinker.
