Opening tonight (April 23rd) in Geneva, Sowat will be having a solo show with Richard & Le Feuvre Gallery in Switzerland. For this exhibition French-American graffiti artist prepared new body of work that is based on calligraphy and typography, visual languages he fell in love during his stays in California years ago.
Known as a part of the infamous Da Mental Vaporz crew, Sowat has exhibited and painted both legal or illegal all around France and Europe, including working at the Palais de Tokyo. For this particular show he created works on canvas an paper, using various techniques from bamboo stick to acrylic and spray can, as well as an exclusive limited edition lithograph release. Whether understandable or abstract, the works are carrying obvious energy that was put into their creation, juxtaposing the rawness and quickness of graffiti tags with the precision and patience of traditional calligraphy techniques, as seen from these studio preview photos we received.
