Jef Aérosol


& nbsp; Jef Aérosol, in a single name, the universe is given to us. We can already hear the ball that resonates against the walls of the paint bomb and feel the solvent released in spray. Born in Nantes in 1957, Jean-François Perroy alias Jef Aérosol, is a French painter and graffiti artist. It belongs to the first wave of street artists who developed the art of stencil in the 1980s, the pioneers of the genre at that time, carried by the hip hop movement that emerges. Blek Le Rat, Miss Tic or Epsylon Point, so many names which are today considered as real icons and founding fathers of urban art. Throughout France, we see emerging from the facades of the characters whose only black silhouette allows them to live. Jef Aérosol begins in turn, Orléans or Lille before tackling London, Rome, Lisbon or Brussels ... This taste of the street, Jef Aérosol owes it to the punk movement which then makes noise in 1980, a cultural pogo that trains on His journey The artists coming from different horizons. In the beginning, the subjects of his stencils are none other than the artist himself, Jef Aérosol selfies. Subsequently he will reoperate the personalities of the Rock Generation, Elvis Presley or Jimmy Hendrix, and freeze their portraits between two alleys, but stars or not stars, everyone becomes VIP (very important stencil) in his eyes. This is how he will take as models the musicians whom he meets in the streets, passers -by and paint them. & Nbsp; his work is very successful and is particularly recognizable by the red arrow which accompanies all his graffiti paintings, But who does not yet know an explanation precise. We will notably remember his "sitting kid" stencil, symbolizing a young child alone and withdrew on himself. A motif that has gone around the world, now reaching the wall of China.
