@Offthewalljakarta by Project IFI
Art Moment Jakarta presents @Offthewalljakarta‘s project from two parts of the world to bridge the urban art scene of France and Indonesia with two monumental frescoes for the public in Jakarta with Art:1 New Museum. This project comes as street art takes over the conventional art scene.
Street art has unique vibrancy, humanity, colours, and other perceptions, of urban life from the cities around the world. Street artists express their joy, anger, love through their arts for the public’s eyes to enjoy. When an art collector has taken an interest of a painting of street art, they often identify themselves and emotions with the artwork, even though they don’t always understand exactly why they love that particular piece of art.
Four talented artists from both countries will be present for this project. France will be represented by L’Atlas and Katre, while from Indonesia, it will be represented by Stereoflow and Darbotz. The difference in their style, from the geometric approaches, letterings, and perspectives, will create a unique and colourful vision which resonance a dream into reality.
