When I am like yesterday, in the middle of nature, in the heart of Paris, on an abandoned train track – you can still see my stories 👆 – I feel the Street-art of the origins. ⁣⁣
Free, without ties and without complexes. Without money too. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I remember the chase races with the subway agents & cops when I was a teenager, I even had a tag and I ran aha very quickly. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
We’ve been up on the rooftops and it was pretty sporty. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣
Since then, I have entered the market of contemporary art. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I see today the growing pressure from a generation that wants to make all this dtreet-art work profitable. If course, I understand them. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
There are also investors and enlightened amateurs. Fluctuart has just opened in Paris, it’s bold and it doesn’t surprise me coming from its founder who is a real rebel at heart. But what is the market? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Does it exist? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Are the orders public or is there a real interest in the private sector? The private sector is both a collector who will do everything to raise his artist and institutions that will invest in ROI and image. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣
Comparing or even assimilating Street-art to contemporary art is difficult. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣
It seems also that this is even dangerous ground, you shouldn’t make enemies because of misunderstandings.

⁣⁣
But I want to know more behind this culture and as soon as I can this winter, I’ll investigate this question further. Street-artists also have to open their doors to me. ⁣⁣
