This rather large work made in Aerosol painting with stencils and drawings is a strong tribute to pop and street culture which is generally inspired by comics here with Wonder Woman and the spider and mixes with the character of an anachronistic little girl reading a magazine that refers to this culture, with the children of Doisneau and Keith Harring's dog which is a nod to this pop and street culture as well. The "real" characters are in black and white like old photos and the comic book characters are in colour to accentuate this discrepancy and contrast with my very colourful style.

Sara Chelou

MONTREUIL (93), FRANCE

16 works

For twenty years now, she has been running the streets, squats, wastelands and humanist causes... Sara Chelou who puts solar colours on our miseries... Of bilingual and international culture, she lives and works in Paris. His masters are the painters of the 1950s, the new realists of the 1960s, the free figuration of the 1980s. And as for the way she paints in the city, she says she is influenced "by American pop culture with Keith Haring, Wharol, Lichtenstein, by graffiti culture from everywhere and elsewhere". It was in the 1990s, in Paris, that she began to paint outside the walls, as a committed artist in the underground world, in industrial cathedrals and libertarian wastelands. "I have a plastic and experimental journey that questions the artist's role in the city but also his place in society. In twenty years, she has lived through many epics, but her favourite remains that of the Convent of the Récollets (Paris, 10th arrondissement), a remarkable 17th century building that the French government had dedicated to destruction and that street art artists, who had entered into resistance, saved. Sara Chelou is a committed witness of her time and the icons of our world, Bukovski, Basquiat, Gainsbourg, Sitting Bull, Frida Kalho.... cross her work. His urban poetry accompanies us and his messages slow our steps! On his canvases, the adventure continues to reach your home....
