Do we like commemorations? Not really. Ok, maybe a little. Sa we will take a moment ta pop the champagne cork for the tenth anniversary of GRAFFITIART Magazine Magazine.
What a journey since the time when Samantha Longhi and Nicolas Chenus decided ta launch the reference review of street art! Back then, the Commission Paritaire des Publications, a sort of board of censorship French-style, had refused ta recognize this magazine that promoted "vandalism". What a good laugh! Today, there is not a single mayor who does not corne begging these "vandal" artists ta embellish their neighborhood.
For this issue, no statement, no tribute, but a special guest: lnvader, who celebrates his 20 years of career. An icon? Yes. For his technique: he managed ta make his work last in the street. For his themes: he drew from technology and pop culture. And for his market recognition. He stands as an example.
You will discover another special gift in this issue: the exclusive interview of the very secret Pejac. And for our birthday, maybe, and for the fun of it, certainly, the Canemorto group welcomed us ta follow them in their manie quest for artistic gestures and logically, we welcomed them ta use the magazine for their own purposes. A rather nice initiative that we will need ta repeat.
We will aise be at the Urban Art Fair starting on April 12th. We are busy bees ... with no time ta look back! •
We will conclude with a note on an infomercial dedicated to Richard Orlinski, a man we so deeply admire for so many reasons too long to explain. Worry and irony.
Happy new year to all of you.
