This moved vintage ballerina looks with tenderness at Bart Simpson who realizes a graffiti in a certainly illegal way since he seems to be suspicious of it. All this work, which is full of colours, poetic and full of characters that are so many references to different eras and to a collective imagination, is an ode to joy and to the creative act, and shows the energy of pop' art with a dose of humour and tenderness. The whole is summed up in the phrase "art is life" and the poetry of the painting is enhanced by the melancholy of the Little Prince who is surrounded by 2 cheerful flowers which are a reference to the pop art painter Murakami. There is also a reference to geek culture and vintage video games with the character of Mario who represents this movement born with a certain technology in the 80's that has already become a part of our lives. This work is done in the "pressure" style that saw its rise with the advent of graffiti and street art.

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....
