BOOT : From graffiti to wall painting – Session 2
Saturday, March 18th, from 10am to 6pm
For this second session centered around graffiti, Atelier Wonderful has offered up its walls for the use of some local graffiti artists : they are BOOT group (Duy Thông, Thành Lân, Thao Nguyen, students from the Fine Art University of Ho Chi Minh city) and GF, G2 and B crews. All have been invited to re-think graffiti, adapted to a new context ; this reflexion means research of materials and supports dedicated to the presentation of a traditionally outdoor work in an interior place.
Beginning from codes belonging to the practice of graffiti and after two weeks of conception and realization of their projects, BOOT , GF, G2 and B are presenting works on different supports (wall, canvas, video) created with a number of techniques.
