The exhibition Pressionism: Graffiti Masterpieces on Canvas puts in the spotlight the extraordinary art movement that has become a global phenomenon — Graffiti. For a long time denounced and dismissed by art critics, state authorities and the general public, graffiti has been treated as a pedestrian and unsophisticated form of language. Discover the contrary and delve into this world of colour and calligraphy.
Through an extensive collection of more than a hundred artworks by graffitists from all over the world, Pressionism traces the hidden history of this oft-neglected movement and highlights the techniques and aesthetics in this form of art. Featuring masterpieces by Rammellzee, Kool Koor and Toxic, as well as works by local talents such as Antz, Zero and TraseOne, this retrospective is the broadest ever organised, and promises a psychedelic whirlwind, explosive, energetic and unapologetically expressive.
Venue: Singapore Pinacothèque de Paris
When: 22 Jan - 10 Apr 2016,
