As part of the 2020 edition of Pasteurdon, this researchers' blouse customised by Sun7 is auctioned. The funds raised will be used to fund research.
SUN 7 is, obviously, the child of intersections and overlaps between word and image, poetry and colour, art and street. At the dawn of the 1990s, he discovered the world of New York graffiti arts. A spray paint can in hand, he attacks the skin of the walls, from Paris to New York.
He multiplied performances and interventions in Paris, Lyon and Marseille, then in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Jakarta.... He then uses the canvas, the panel, the metal plates... His register is mixed under multiple influences: action painting, Arabic calligraphy, Latino tattoos. But the word dominates. A mesh of words, most often illegible and which, when assembled, compose portraits, self-portraits, abstracts. Obvious portraits and encoded texts, a subtle game of appearance/disappearance, where what concerns calligraphy, glyphs, ideograms, dematerialize, leaving the mystery.
