Pressionism, The Masterpieces of Graffiti on Canvas

 

© Pinacothèque de Paris

The exhibition Pressionism, the Masterpieces of Graffiti on Canvas from Basquiat to Bando, will bring together, from March 12, 2015 in the Pinacothèque de Paris nearly one hundred paintings, carried out between the 1970s and 1990s by the greatest masters of graffiti on canvas.These masterpieces will highlight the hidden history of that movement, unfairly linked to tagging and incorrectly identified by official Art history.

If the recent paintings of urban art are obvious to the large public who sees them in the galleries, very few people know that, since the 1970s, the graffiti artists created in studios a genuine production on canvas, far from the street and from Street Art, to which they are nowadays relegated. Indeed, from the very start, graffiti artists, among whom were Coco and Phase 2, gathered around Hugo Martinez within the UGA (Union of Graffiti Artists) in order to exhibit their works in galleries.

Andy Warhol approached and linked to his own story two artists taken from the world of graffiti : Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat (presented in this exhibition), covering the 1970s through the 1990s. The movement, in its entirety, with its history and its grand masters remained, for its part, remote from the classical art scene, and from the eyes of the public, which can finally discover it and admire its masterpieces.
