FATCAP: Where do you come from? Tell us about your beginnings…
I grew up in the suburbs of Paris and then came to Paris at 18 to go to college. Having trouble just listening to a professor without doing anything, I wanted a change of air and went to Italy with just a backpack. Then, after seeing what I wanted, I decided that I belonged to an “art” school…
I started street art later with the simple desire to express something personal without any pretense.
FC: How would you define your style and your way of working?
I don’t know if I have a style, I try to make myself happy first and I do things only if I want to.
I love mixing different techniques, such as acrylic, silk-screening, cutting and even photocopy.
Also, I’m not good with a bomb, so I try to use it the least possible ;-)
FC: What are your sources of inspiration?
Everywhere, what’s around me, what I see…

There is such a feeling of impending seasonal change here in Tel Aviv. Inspiration comes in with the spring & for the third year, the INSPIRE Collective asks you to show off some inspiration! It’s during these pre-spring months, for the last few years, that we really get working and organized in order to time the show with these weather and seasonal changes as a type of metaphor for inspiration. Join us this year and show off what inspires you!!! It must be noted that most artworks received will be installed and shown in one public location in the streets of urban Tel Aviv. As the weather turns really great here in May,please keep in mind when preparing your works, that this is an outdoor event and the Middle Eastern desert sun should be taken into account. Artworks are recommended to be durable (not easily broken) and somehow protected from the sun during the exhibition’s duration. The last two years of hosting the Inspiration Art Exhibition here in the Middle East have been a great success & each year the size of participating artists and appreciators are growing!
THIS IS AN OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS OF ALL KINDS TO BRING SOME INSPIRATION TO THE MIDDLE EAST! POSTERS, PRINTS, AND CLOTHING ARE THE FOCUS OF THIS YEAR’S SHOW, HOWEVER WE INVITE YOU TO SUBMIT ARTWORKS OF ANY TYPE AS LONG AS IT SHOWS US WHAT INSPIRES YOU! JOIN US & SHOW YOUR ART IN THE STREETS OF TEL AVIV!
(Video, press, and updates about the show's developments will be posted in the INSPIRATION 3 group discussion threads as they happen!)
ALL WORKS (AND FREEBIES TO GIVE OUT) SHOULD BE MAILED TO:
PO BOX 4917
TEL AVIV, ISRAEL 61049
(THERE ARE NO SIZE LIMITATIONS, BUT PLEASE WRITE US ABOUT LARGER INSTALLATIONS PREVIOUSLY TO MAILING THEM OFF).
You can see pictures of the first ever Inspiration Art Exhibition that happened @ Barbur Gallery in Jerusalem here:
The second year we exhibited even more artists @ Legal Action Gallery / Casco Urban Lab in Tel Aviv, which can be seen here:
