More general informations about Paolo Proserpio :

Paolo Proserpio is one of the pioneering artist of French Street Art (contemporary urban art). He is now internationally famous as one of the major artists of his generation. Since the early 80s, just after the free-figuration movement, the collective memory and walls of Paris were permeated with the colouring and snappy graphics of Speedy Graphito’s ‘Style Graphito’.
SG is an Art creator, Prolific and inventive, SG uses all media (painting, sculpture, installation, photo or video) to create a universal language that transcends his work and time. Developed in themes, exhibitions follow one another always unveiling new and surprising universes. Continuously evolving and reinventing himself, his trademark is a deep and joyful art in often vivid colours, that shakes our perceptions in a playful and ironic way. He does not hesitate to appropriate and divert popular culture imagery, super heroes, and even brands, towards a nearly systematic decryption of our collective subconscious. He then declines the many standards and dictates of our Western cultural identity into as many questions, superimposing a more poetic dimension to the reality of our society.

While SG uses a precise personal imagery dictionary, tangibly connected to Art History, he is often more than inclined to provide its keys. Everyone can find their own desires, a good reason to continue a more personal quest. The themes of childhood and death, always present, give the works a more autobiographical character, inspired by his wanderings and experiences.
