Tomek & Skube (PAL crew) exhibition at Jour et Nuit

by Demian Smith on September 7, 2012

Paris art exhibitions don’t come much more underground than Paris main hardcore graffiti art crew, PAL. Tomek and Skube are two of its most active members. Their ‘indoors practice’, however, is a little departed from what you’ll see sprayed on walls around Paris, but not so dissimilar.

Open to the public at the ‘art squat’ Jour et Nuit in Paris’ 15th arrondissement, next to the Eiffel Tower, here is a photo report of the artwork for sale.

Tomek comes from the Paris street art scene with a focus on typography and gestural painting. His style shows an orbiting of energetic materials and calligraphy. His generous painting invites us to question certain aesthetic limits from the speed of his stroke, to consider other approaches due to the ease of its forms and innovative technique. Its appeal can be sought from the general movement that proposes us to follow the evolution of an artist aware of his era, which is constantly changing.

Skube, also from the Paris street graffiti movement, meanwhile, presents us with eddies of a turbulent world, from which he first emerged as an artist, in the year of grace, 2001. From a timeless decade Skube searches for the absolute, his eyes main ally, his curiosity as a faithful adventurer. His understanding of graffiti supports his quest: to break the time and manners, laws and good taste of this stylistic movement.

The show is organised by the specialist graffiti art dealership, Pour la Gloire.
