Bien Urbain 4
1 month : from 7th June to 5th July 2014
14 invited artists : Pierre-Laurent Cassière (FR), Aurélien Bertini (FR), Brad Downey (US), Zosen Bandido (ES) et Mina Hamada (JP), Tellas (IT), Pastel (AR), Elian Chali (AR), Franco Fasoli Jaz (AR), MOMO (US), les Frères Ripoulain (FR), Graphic Surgery (NL), Ever (AR), Etienne Bultingaire (FR).
Pastel shares with Jaz a workshop, a past in graffiti in Buenos Aires and a craving for experimenting different techniques according to the places of intervention. Graduated in Architecture, he makes an approach to the relations between art and urbanism through abstract technical designs or organic structures, complex webs of falsely figurative shapes.
