Alex One Show
‘Pas Pied. Show 7’ opening at the StolenSpace Gallery on the 21st August will showcase new works by renowned French graffiti artist Alexone. This much anticipated solo show will feature paintings in spraypaint and acrylic on paper and canvas. This show will also see the release of a new screen print hand pulled by the artist.
Alexone lives and works in Paris and comes from a graffiti background. He rose to fame in the early 90’s with his striking letter-based tags (under the name of Oedipe - Oedipus) appearing on the streets of Paris. Since then his distinctive work has won him a reputation far beyond France and exhibitions all over Europe, among them Paris, Hamburg, Milan, Berlin, Amsterdam and Brussels.
Alexone’s first book “Came A Yeux” (Drugs For The Eyes) was published last year by Kitchen 93. Signed copies of which will be on sale throughout the exhibition.
