From 18th January to 28th February 2018
Graffiti artist from Seine-Saint-Denis, Jo Di Bona explores on walls or on canvas the theme of the portrait through an iconic and very colorful style, at the crossroads of Pop Art and the world of Street. Using a unique technique called “POP GRAFFITI”, the artist combines tag, stencil and paper cutting to create hypnotic works whose subjects are revealed in a striking game of movement, relief and unveiling. Starting from “traditional” graffiti which he enhances with pop motifs and covers old posters or paper prints printed from photos, Jo imagines “sampling” of images which he lacerates and then tears in certain places to reveal the different layers. Emblematic figures of history, cinema or pop culture, faces of anonymous children or heads of wild animals, his portraits – always iconic and universal, if not socially engaged – are then drawn in a whirlwind of details and contrasts borrowed from the codes of urban art, the work of Warhol or even that of Rotella.
