When graffiti become works of art
This evening (Saturday) I popped into the L.J. gallery for the opening of an exhibition by Olivier Kosta-Théfaine, a graffiti artist. I'm sure that if he had been told, say, 15 years ago when he used to hijack the walls of the suburb where he used to live (Sartrouville) to paint graffiti, that he would one day end up in a gallery (and the Cartier foundation!) he would not have believed it. It's well deserved though, he has talent. Have a look at the Gallery site (click on the image to view more) or the Cartier foundation one.
