This Spring 2015 issue features a special report on abstraction in urban art, featuring artists who express themselves on the street and in the studio in a mathematical, geometric or free-throw manner, all in search of a universal language, such as Maya Hayuk, Revok, Carl Cashman and Jason Woodside.

Let’s discover the most exciting artists of the moment, we read an interview withInstallationa Chicago artist of deconstructed figuration, halfway between Warhol and Rosenquist ; Levaleta young Parisian artist who creates humorous, contextual collages in Indian ink on the streets of the capital; and Cleon Petersona renowned artist and graphic designer from the Los Angeles skateboarding scene, and fellow artist Shepard Fairey, paints an obscure Eldorado where disorder and unspeakable impulses are given free rein in death dances devoid of morality and justice.

Finally, we delve into the portraits of two up-and-coming young artists on the contemporary urban art scene: Ekundayobased in Hawaii, who devotes his time to semi-expressionist, hypersensitive painting, and Taku Obatawho, like a break-dancing samurai, pays tribute to hip-hop culture using traditional Japanese sculptural techniques.We also feature the most beautiful walls painted around the world at the start of the year, the latest street art news, the results of the latest auctions and the must-see exhibitions in galleries and museums between now and summer.
