Speerstra Gallery Paris - John Crash Matos "Life of icons"

Crash composes brilliant conversations between colours and forms; he has worked lovingly on canvas, paper and walls since 1980. Born in the Bronx and now a reference in American post graffiti work, he has exhibited in prestigious collections, both privately and in museums; this prolific artist has extraordinary mastery of the spray can. His exhibition 'Life of Icons' marks his much awaited and rare return to Paris. The Speerstra Gallery takes pride in the longevity of its collaboration with Crash, a sign of fidelity over many decades; the Gallery is exhibiting his very latest work, more refined in style yet with equal gusto: against a black background, white and coloured lines give dynamic form to letters of the alphabet, with recurring symbols that are present in all his work. Limited only by the size of the canvas, Crash presents a joyful all-over display, an iconography greatly inspired and referenced by his pop-art culture and the American comics. Ensuring spontaneity of artistic expression and authenticity born during the first hours of New York tag, Crash has the aura of those pioneer artists of inimitable style, an undeniable source of inspiration for the generations that followed.
