Horfee From Paris Is coming To Viborg!
Horfee is one of the leading graffiti activists in Paris . In the past 12 years he has travelled the world extensively, leaving his own hugely unique take on graffiti wherever he goes. But it is in Paris, his hometown, that he has left his indelible mark; it is difficult to find a district that he hasn’t covered in his name.Fightng the cleaning city system, and of course , keeping doing it ; He sees a hope in every personnal marks on walls , like on the tables in classes. A recent graduate from art school, he has begun to interest the art world, taking the illustrative elements of his graffiti away from the walls to the other materials he works with; Sculptures ,installations , and tatoos as well ; "All the signs of belonging to a marginal culture interrest me , being proud of it is the key , and follow your personnal rythm in it , that's my goal and my vision , of what's best . " he explain in a very good way thrue his exibitions what's important in the "non accepted art" ,further the drips and the hiphop style corporates re-use non-stop ; Criticising that , he shows a loose line ,in the drawings he presents , facing the hard structure of compositions in frames , (difficult for a most muralist painter ;) ,and always reaching spectator's mind with ideas of sharing ,and entering his shapes and things alive in movements ; nasty characters going out of theyr own bodies , or people walking thrue each other on fliying platforms, "no limits of imaginations" is his closest friend . " the subculture doesn't need to hate the rest (knowing it's classic when you are used to feel rejected with your codes ), but to me , being smart is making people understand we have the same power than corporate , but with the freedom of canceling the money consumering ) He keeps on painting as free as he always did in the spaces he chooses , and articulates this unframed part of work , with a gallery work that hang on strong references in the animated cartoon from the 30 's , or in classic art everybody knows . the singular touch in thaughts would be to embrace as many people as he can, to show everyone has a chance to get rid of frustration triying to express them self . Comming from low naberhoods in Paris , he wants to use every details of everydy life to accumulate as many codes of designs, or street signs , and organise personnal spontaniousity with "robot lines "(as he said ) , and create narration , reaching pleasure in the chaos , and harmony in the strengh of the fear , expressions of the death that is soon coming all around the characters that shows a parade to who knows where;
