Opening This Weekend: L'Atlas at Magda Danysz

Holy Geometry: we can't wait for this first solo show by l'ATLAS at Magda Danysz Gallery in Paris: French artist l’ATLAS is distinguished by a very personal style, a systematic and geometric lettering in which we find all the spirituality of traditional calligraphy. From the oldest piece of art to the newest processes works, this first solo exhibition at the gallery reveals the richness and diversity of an artist who built over the years an identifiable language between all, between calligraphy and graffiti, writing and geometry.

L’Atlas: Extraction at Magda Danysz Gallery

by Jonathan Roze
Renowned in his young years for his tags installed in Paris streets, L’Atlas structured his work as time went by, step by step, around the study of calligraphy. Using his name for the first time, he was led to deconstruct letters and left behind him the narcissistic spirit of the graffiti world. With a very restricted color range (mostly black, white, grey, chrome, yellow and red), over the years he developed a style based on symmetry.

Toy Portraits

    Daniel Fuchs, born in 1966 and Geo Fuchs, born in 1969 both live and work together for now more than 15 years in Germany.

The Fall of the Hero

      The Magda Danysz gallery presents for the first time Vuk Vidor’s recent works, the second stage of his American Quartet. A work focused on the modern world, current events and the ultra power of the United States, Vidor takes from American comics in terms of his technique and style, but here the super-heroes are mostly pathetic or discouraged. Famous art critic Jean-Luc Chalumeau describes the work of this French-Serbian artist this way "we do not describe the painting of Vuk Vidor: too varied, too surprising, too mysterious in certain cases. But it is painting". Vuk Vidor is not only... [more]

Handstyle Abstractions

by E-Slant Team
The Magda Danysz Gallery keeps on supporting street art like it has been doing for a long time by welcoming the incredible graffiti artist JonOne, one of the first to bring graffiti to France in the 1980. Be it for his talent as a graffiti artist or an abstract painter, JonOne is undeniably praised for his work and paintings worldwide. The colors, overflowing with communicative energy, give the impression of a modern stained glass painting.JonOne starting doing graffiti on the walls and trains in the poor Harlem neighbourhoods where he grew up. “The subway’s a museum that goes back and f...

Vernissage

And to top it off a great show of pop surrealism at Galerie Magda Danysz, Eric White's work was a standout: but unfortunately no good photos came of that opening! we were too busy with the Campari cocktails at that point. But do check out the show if you have a chance, there are some incredible large canvases that will blow your mind! --Natalie Hegert [more]
