inside LAC - Laboratorio de Artes Criativas at Largo Convento Sra. da Glória - (antiga Cadeia de Lagos - old Lagos Prison), this artwork was done during – ARTURb Stencil Masters Edition 0.2 - 2019
This artwork was done inside Prison Solitary confinement, which is colloquially referred to in American English as "the hotbox", in Australian English as "the Slot" or in British English as "the block", SWIPE ➡️ ➡️ ➡️ ➡️ to see more details of this artwork ----------- The Marseille based artist, Stéphane Moscato , tirelessly walks the streets peeling off whole sections of posters which he then fixes onto canvas in his studio. Then begins a creative dialogue with the support as a random word, part of a face or color stands out. The artist uses stencils but refuses the reproducible character of the technique by composing works which are unique (never reproduced) and polysemiotic. He lets himself be guided by the meaning which emerges from these fragments of the street.
Strongly inspired by punk rock culture, he also proposed a social and political commitment which is implicit in his work. An interesting balance with the way he adapts classical mythology in a new narration.
He is represented in France by OPENSPACE gallery in Paris and in Switzerland by G. DAEPPEN Galery in Basel .
