Here is a new summer issue that gives pride of place to murals of all kinds such as 2KM3 in Saint-Gervais, as well as to the diversity of the international scene. With a folder dedicated to the childish medium of chalk, we discover beauty in simplicity, but also its wide possibilities. We are also interested in the MaCO, the open air museum of the city of Sète, on the occasion of the tenth edition of the K-Live festival, celebrating more than thirty achievements in the city on a human scale.
On the cover of this summer issue, a sublime work by American artist Audrey Kawasaki, between character and seduction. A fighting spirit that can be found in the interview of the French expatriate in the United States, WK Interact, who recounts with heart open his intimate career as a professional and resettles his major work in the history of street art. In other, less urban spheres, the Hawaiian Hula pays tribute to the biosphere by placing its work in natural landscapes of unparalleled beauty. In another register, the contemporary artist Charles Pétillon engages a hypnotic dialogue with the spectator in immersive installations made of white balloons. The Californian Andrew Schoultz makes us travel, thanks to his Asian and medieval inspirations, in a rich aesthetic universe of symbols as we get lost in the graphic richness of the drawings and paintings of the artist Nantes Pez, a smile in corner. Finally, one enters the studio of the Spanish artist Belin as if one finds oneself in a classic painter of the twentieth century, raising the genre of the portrait to the rank it deserves. Finally, as in each issue, you can discover our selection of books, limited editions, exhibitions and fairs not to be missed between July and September, but also our selection of emerging artists such as Johannes Mundiger, Justin Lovato , Strook, Linus Lundin, Mattia Lullini and Anne-Laure House. We wish you a good reading wherever you are, on a beach, by the pool, on a terrace, or in the break room at the office! And most importantly, we wish you a wonderful summer!
