NEWSText: Satsuki Miyanishi

The exhibition by an artist Baron von Fancy based in New York, will be held at colette.

His work is an homage to an older New York and meant to honor the sign-painter artists who plastered the city with words. Capturing pseudo-clichés, tongue-in-cheek phrases from his daily life on his work on paper. The artist seeks from conventions on the subway, on television and radio, or waiting for the walk light to change when someone is talking on their mobile phone. A string of words said by someone he don’t know, and who has probably not thought about them, is transformed when he paint them. He give them his personal touch.
