BACK TO THE BASICS

I feels so great to do proper graffiti again. In fact, lately I've been busy being busy and didn't really take time to go for leisure painting with some friends.
This was such a great time with my friend ONIO visiting from São Paulo, Leila and MALÖR (tnc) from Gremany.
Good lads, Good times :)

RIDE THE WALL

I had to do this post for a while now, it was the best exhibition I was invited to for a long time with a beautiful list of artist.


Ride the Wall
 is one of the latest Art exhibition that I was invited too. It took place in my hometown Geneva, Switzerland last May at the Genev'art space.
I was exhibiting with big names like: NOE TWO or L'ATLAS which I must admit I am pretty hyped about hehe! But one of the craziest thing of this show is that 3 original paintings of Jean-Michel BASQUIAT where exhibited in the same show!?!

The theme of this exhibition was the meeting point of skateboard/snowboard,
For the first time I decided to make an installation instead of just hanging works on the walls, and since the gallery literally let me do what I wanted to I imagined a whole story behind this installation.
My concept was to illustrate the struggle that skateboarders can go thru with the repression of cities against skateboard using "anti-skate" leading to the death of legendary skate-spots.

Did I forget to mention that they build a mini-ramp outside the gallery especially for the RTW exhibition... well, they did! :)
















They did some really nice videos of the installation of the show and of the opening night. So here's the one of the preparation of the exhibition, Enjoy! :)
An BIG BIG THANK YOU to Anouck & Lena for making this happen, it was a fantastic experience!




ALMOST ASHAMED

Hey everyone, well, as you might have noticed, I haven't been too active about blog posting lately. In fact, 2014 started quite intensely for me I must admit and I didn't have time (or took time) to blog about my different activities and shows.

For those who are into following my daily work activities, you can follow me on my instagram: @Rylsee :)

From now on, I want to go back to post more on here.
To start this great "middle of the year good resolution" here's a mini-video of the latest type mural I  painted last week at the restaurant INGLEWOOD Gourmet burgers in my hometown Geneva, Switzerland.
Thanks to Shark & Kareyn for coming to meet me and for this nice video.

CONVERSE CLASHWALL BERLIN

After 12 day of hard work in a super atmosphere, the Clashwall project is now over! I was collaborating on this project with Gogo Plata and the WurstBande.
It was two weeks of intensive drawing & painting and if I had to sum it up in a few words it would be something like:
hundreds of spray cans emptied - the biggest wall I painted so far - an awesome team - wonderful paint partners - a beautiful/intense experience - and a lot of great memories.
Thanks to Cromatics to organize this, and to the whole Converse team who took really great care of us four during this project.
Here's two videos edited by my boyz from EDITUDE PICTURES
Enjoy!

SHOWCASE @ DOCKERS® pop-up shop BERLIN

Last Friday I was invited for a one-night showcase at the Dockers® Pop-up Shop in Berlin Mitte. I presented a new series of hand-painted signs, inspired by traditional techniques and aesthetics with a touch of anachronism in it.
In this showcase, I also included a few collaboration pieces I did with my friend Otto Baum, a member of the Berlin based art collective Klub7.
The overall night went really well. Thanks to DOCKERS and Made My Day agency for making this happen!
