L’Atlas, an artist with a meticulous approach, seeks a particular purity in both form and the restrained use of colors. Oriental philosophy, emphasizing how duality begets complementarity, holds significant influence over his life and artistic expressions. This philosophy forms the crux of his artistic journey. Notably, a recurrent dichotomy exists between white and black in the majority of his compositions, drawing inspiration from Eastern philosophies.
Artistic Influence and Comparison
Often likened to the Italian protest movement of the late 1960s, Arte Povera, L’Atlas mostly eschews heavy equipment that could potentially tether him to economic and cultural institutions. His art process accentuates the significance of creation, emphasizing the creative gesture over material dependence.
Special Project: Black Lights Installation
The installation at Les Bains, Résidence d’artistes, unveiled L’Atlas’s profound affinity for dichotomous themes. The exploration of black lights within his work accentuated his fascination with dualism, casting a surreal and enthralling ambience.
Location and Storage
The artwork, captured in the special project photo by Stéphane Bisseuil, resides at MoSA in Paris, specifically located at 78, rue Amelot, Paris 75011, perpetuating the essence of L’Atlas’s artistry within the Museum of Street Art’s collection.
L’Atlas’s distinctive artistic journey, infused with philosophical underpinnings, mirrors the interplay between duality and harmony. His exploration of dichotomy, showcased in the special project installation, stands as a testament to his unique artistic vision and philosophy.
I am a mural enthusiast and a fervent admirer of street art. Rather than creating murals myself, I am passionate about collecting them. My love for street art knows no bounds. I am dedicated to curating and cherishing these artworks that grace the streets. My collection stands as a testament to my profound appreciation for this form of artistic expression.
