Exhibition: Kongo

The Galerie Matignon is hosting the works of French street artist Cyril Phan, also known as Kongo. This autodidact artist was first famous as a tagger and graffiti artist in Paris, but also throughout Europe and the United States. He also joined the MAC CREW collective, and is the co-founder of the Kosmopolite festival, dedicated to graffiti on a global scale. Open until May 17th, the exhibition shows every aspect of his graphic palette (spray paint, stencil, ink and marker pen) and proposes a nice overview of the current trends in street art.

Exhibition: “Kongo”, from March 20th to May 17th, 2014.
Open from Monday to Saturday from 10am to 1pm and from 2:30pm to 7pm.
Free entrance.

Super expo vue en avant-première le 20 mars. L'artiste Kongo qu'on n'avait pas vu à Paris depuis trois ans nous montre toute l'étendue de son évolution. Ses œuvres sont celles d'un peintre confirmé qui utilise l'art graffiti comme moyen d'expression. Des tableaux qui explosent de vie et de bonne humeur. À voir absolument! Et vous serez bien accueillis, les galeristes sont très sympatiques et accueillants.
