The new series of works by the very busy-as-of-late Parisian artists Andre known for his alter-ego of graffiti as Mr. A, entitled simply ‘Drawings’, will exhibit at colette kicking of on the 1st February 2010. Having just recently collaborated with brands such as Louis Vuitton and Vitamin Water, Andre is definitely keeping with his work’s momentum. This series of work is inspired by the imagery of love- psychedelic 60′s and 70′s, mixed with memories that have a comic feel. In the world of Andre, ‘his drawings are a kind of currency, like notes for exchange of love. For him the solution to suppress this huge layer of capitalism, the inside or outside of it, he prefers to think the middle of art lies in what love can buy- love and generosity.’ Quote from Olivier Zahm.
Thirty designs of all sizes, serigraphs in limited edition numbers, and a few surprises and chic color.
