Fabien Castanier Gallery is very excited to announce the grand opening of our Miami location in the Wynwood arts district, with a solo exhibition for Speedy Graphito. The exhibition, An American Story, will feature new paintings from the artist who has spent the last few months in residence in his Miami studio.
Speedy Graphito’s artistic universe has always been built on an honest dialogue concerning the role of the image within modern society. Since the inception of his career in the 1980s, his work has dealt with concepts of commercialism, iconography, and pop culture. His new series of work, what he refers to as “mon histoire de l’art” (or “my art history”), confronts our consumerist society and the omnipresence of images and globalization of culture.
His work for An American Story references motifs and themes from some of the most recognizable painters in art history, from Van Gogh and Matisse, to Andy Warhol and Tom Wesselman. Juxtaposed alongside his own style, the mixture of modern and contemporary masters stands to question the role of art and its legacy through a shifted perspective.
Speedy Graphito, a student of the renowned School of Art Estienne, has since cemented his place as one of the most influential figures who emerged from the Parisian art scene in the 1980s. His reputation has steadily grown during his 30 year career, affecting a myriad of artists by laying the foundation of his genre, urban and pop art through the lens of contemporary media culture. The constant evolution of his work is a testament to the versatility that he brings through his medium. Speedy Graphito juggles between painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video and performance. And for the past 6 years in the United States, the artist has invigorated the cultural landscape with his tireless commitment to the visual discourse of our generation.
Celebrating the global impact of Speedy Graphito, the Museum of Le Touquet-Paris-Plage is currently holding the artist’s first museum retrospective, UN ART DE VIVRE. The exhibition employs the entirety of the museum’s Villa Way Side and takes the show back through the artist’s career, from its beginning in the 1980s (where one will find the famous poster la Rué vers l’art or the Lapinture character) to the recent works of the series “mon histoire de l’art”. The museum exhibition will be on view through May 21, 2017.
The opening of Fabien Castanier Gallery’s new space and exhibition will coincide with the 2017 Art Wynwood art fair and the Miami International Boat Show, both taking place February 16-20. Fabien Castanier Gallery will be exhibiting at Art Wynwood, showing work by Speedy Graphito on our booth.
Fabien Castanier Gallery is excited to participate in the 2017 Art Wynwood art fair, taking place February 16-20, 2017. The gallery will showcase work from Speedy Graphito (FR).
Art Wynwood reflects the dynamic environment of Miami’s burgeoning Wynwood Arts District, which over the last decade has gained international renown as the hub of South Florida’s contemporary art scene. Graffiti artists from all over the world grace the walls of this edgy neighborhood with vibrant, provocative murals that set an energetic tone for the increasingly diverse galleries, restaurants and shops lining the sidewalks.
This openness to new ideas and images is represented at Art Wynwood, which highlights street art, murals, pop surrealism and other genres from the current underground movement. Art Wynwood offers the art enthusiast and seasoned cultural traveler alike a unique opportunity to discover, explore and collect one of the most significant art forms of our time. By presenting these cutting-edge works in a refined atmosphere among a broad range of mediums and styles, Art Wynwood is perfectly positioned to advance the growing worldwide recognition of this movement. While Art Wynwood has its own distinct identity and design, it shares the commitment to presenting the highest level of art from the 20th and 21st centuries in an elegant yet accessible environment that is a hallmark of all the fairs in the expanding Art Miami family.

SPEEDY GRAPHITO, UN ART DE VIVE
October 22, 2016 – May 21, 2017
Opening Reception with the presence of the artist
Saturday, October 22, 2016 at 5:30pm
The Musée du Touquet-Paris-Plage is organizing the first museum retrospective of the artist Speedy Graphito, one of the pioneers of Street Art in France.
The exhibition employs the entirety of the museum’s Villa Way Side and takes the show back through the artist’s career, from its beginning in the 1980s (where one will find the famous poster la Rué vers l’art or the Lapinture character) to the recent works of the series “mon histoire de l’art” (“my art history”), which questions art and its legacy through a shifted perspective.
You will also find his work on the “De-construction of the Image” (déchirures (tears), Atomisation, pixelisation, etc…), the series of “New Technologies” in which reality is juxtaposed alongside the virtual universe, and “Urban Pop” that celebrates the art of graffiti.
The exhibition traces the artistic universe of Speedy Graphito, which questions untiringly the concept of the image in a timeless space, where Snow White eats the Apple logo and Scrooge McDuck is a graffiti artist.
About the Artist…
Speedy Graphito, aka Olivier Rizzo, a student of the Ecole Estienne, was first known in the early 1980s by his graffito of an almost hallucinogenic and wild-haired robot character. He revisits the classics of modern art with humor and created the Lapinture creature, a zoomorphic combination of the human body and a rabbit head that runs through his work as an iconic muse. The protean artist is sometimes referred to as a “DJ of plastic arts,” as he juggles between painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, performance and video. He incorporates into his compositions new technology and popular culture (manga, video games…). Today, Speedy Graphito in “mon histoire de l’art”, interrogates the consumerist society here at the beginning of our third millennium through the omnipresence of the image and the globalization of culture.
The exhibition is curated by Fabien Castanier

Fabien Castanier Gallery is proud to present a group show with new work from Charlie Anderson and Camilo Matiz, “Medios Sin Fin”, which will open September 8th in our Bogotá space.
Camilo Matiz is a Colombian artist, who has spent his life inbetween the real and the manufactured. His artistic career has ranged from being a film and T.V. director to a fine artist, giving him a special awareness about the roll of the spectator, acknowledging its constant presence. He presents mixed media pieces and installations, often using neon.
Charlie Anderson is a British artist, who lives and works in London. He represents the nature of contemporary culture through painting, creating works that are composed of imagery from magazines, billboards, propaganda and advertisements. By painting image on top of image and fragmenting the discernible text and forms, Anderson draws parallels to the fleeting nature of life.

Fabien Castanier Gallery is excited to announce the opening of RERO’s first solo exhibition in our Bogotá space, “TOMESELO PERSONAL”. The show will open June 2 and run until July 16.
The artist has created a body of work based on several strategies of communication, where the intrinsic dynamics of conceptual art engage with particulars of graphic design, and where he studies different approaches to perceive the relationship that exists between language and art. His pieces are woven through the visualization of philosophical quotes, cyber and mass language that build multiple layers of complexity, which reveal a critical approach and a refreshing view on the relationship between what can be seen and what can be stated. His versatility invites the viewer to stand in scenery where the possibilities to approach aesthetic concerns resist to be abstracted, representational or merely conceptual.

Fabien Castanier Gallery is excited to announce the third solo exhibition for renowned contemporary urban artist, JonOne, at the gallery in Los Angeles. The exhibition will open May 14 with a reception with the artist, and run until June 11.
The exhibition, entitled Urban Legacy, brings together a collection of new paintings that display the most vibrant and purest style that the artist has developed over his career. Extremely influential to the new generation of urban contemporary artists, JonOne returns to Los Angeles with an exciting array of canvases that seem to breathe with the vitality and spirit of the city.
JonOne (John Andrew Perello, b. 1963, New York) is one of the most significant and celebrated figures in urban contemporary art today. For the past 25 years, he has built his career on a unique blend of graffiti, gesture, abstract expressionism, calligraphy and a masterful understanding of painting’s color and texture.
The artist was brought up in Harlem in the 1980s and now often invokes the revelatory moment of seeing dazzling trails of color speed past from tagged subway trains. This vivid imagery remains as an aesthetic foundation in Jon’s work, which has retained over the decades an incomparable level of dynamism. With this energy, Jon travelled to Paris early in his life and has evolved his practice from the streets to the gallery, with pieces that speak to both the realms of graffiti and contemporary art.

Fabien Castanier Gallery is proud to present Memoria Entre Líneas a group show that combines paintings, sculptures, drawings and installations from the Colombian artists Aníbal Vallejo and Iván Castiblanco. Although their work emerges from different standpoints, these two artists share an interest in finding their own way of creating their pieces, they resist in making their work “in resemblance as”, their processes reflect a yearning to try and find new techniques outside the traditional approach. It is also noticeable that they both peruse a quest for perfection, which is achieved by the repetition within their work, both in the patterns within a single piece, as in the perpetuation of the series or the techniques.
Fabien Castanier Gallery se siente orgullosa en presentar la exposición “Memoria entre líneas” reúne pinturas, esculturas, dibujos e instalaciones de Aníbal Vallejo e Iván Castiblanco. Partiendo de temas distintos, estos dos artistas tienen en común la incuestionable calidad de su trabajo y la constante necesidad de experimentar con nuevas técnicas y materiales.
Opening reception with the Artists Thursday, February 4th from 7-10pm. The show will be on view at the gallery’s second location through March 5th.

French artist Rero is curating the group exhibition by bringing together a collective of artists from different backgrounds all working to create a discourse across boundaries.
The exhibition centralizes around artists who challenge the idea of boundaries within art, both physical and ideological borders. Each artist presents new work for TRANSBORDER examining the transitory elements of shape, color, form, and context within art making. The group exhibition takes a survey of how the language of both abstraction and figurative form can be conveyed throughout vastly different corners of the world. Across borders of both time and space, these artists have created connectivity and conversation through creation.
Opening reception with the artists Saturday, January 30th from 6-9pm. The show will be on view through February 28th. Please contact the gallery for more information.
