I’m a big fan of street art. It is with pleasure that I went to the Espace Fondation EDF to see ‘Street art, innovation at the heart of a movement’, an exhibition about new techniques in urban art. As a preamble, a retrospective recalls the great dates of this artistic movement back in time to the first graffiti made in 1967 in Philadelphia. Initially accused of being urban polluters, artists such as the British Banksy or the American Shepard Fairey are now listed on the art market. Yet they always express their discontent and want that people see the city differently. The exhibition also features several interactive works such as » Water Light Graffiti » by Antonin Fourneau, an LED wall that light up in contact with a wet brush or the installation by Rezine which allows to make graffiti with light. One of the most beautiful piece is without doubt the anamorphosis by Truly. The show is entertaining and educational. It is particularly suited to children. The true fan of street art can find the content a bit light.
