French Urban Art: L’Atlas in India

After his travel to New York in October 2009, famous French urban artist L’Atlas visited India for his exhibition at Alliance Francaise.

Certainly he hit the roads of New Delhi and presented his great paintings (I really love his artworks) in an urban context.

“The 31-years-old has spray-painted two huge canvases at Alliance Francaise and is planning to temporarily vandalize the floor and turn it into a work of art, a painted warren. The canvases are a crisscross of interlinking lines resembling a maze a compass giving directions. They are not chaotic; instead they exude the symmetry of the mandala and have similarities with Indian rangoli patterns. [...]

When he is not painting at the Alliance Francaise, L’Atlas walks around Delhi looking for ‘a suitable manhole’. Manholes, he says, are ‘amazing, more beautiful than all the paintings in the museum’”.
