Member of the Da Mental Vaporz crew , multidisciplinary artist Brusk is one of the leading figures of Street Art in France, with mastering techniques in graffiti , but also lightgraff, sculpture, installation and 3D animation. For his first Parisian show ‘AD VITAM ETERNAM?‘ at Galerie Itinerrance, Brusk concentrated more than twenty years of exceptional practice on a series of paintings and sculptures. All his imagery is there: ripped icons, symbols of polluted consumerism, children drawings made out of acid colors, ironic references to the masters. Magritte’s ‘Red Model’ is revisited with Nike shoes, Rodin’s ‘Thinker’ is melting away.
The artist trademark rainbow dripping technique creates volume and lighting effects that evolve in an impressive 3rd dimension. A sculpture of a real size baby elephant holding a spraycan defies gravity leaving his footprints on the ceiling and walls. A shining and melting bleeding heart sculpture is made of two kissing skulls, symbol of love until death.
‘AD VITAM ETERNAM?’ questions the place of humanity in its urban environment and invites the viewer to reflect on the future of the living and its relationship with death.
Many artists like Seth, Legz , Choq and members of the DMV crew (Jaw, Kan, Sowat) also came in force to celebrate the opening.
