An initiation to the history of art versus the art of graffiti, do you want to? In the north, calligraphy and archaeology. In the south, astronomy and geography books. To the west, graffiti, street art, and large compasses made of white lines on grey asphalt. In the east, geometric abstraction and optical art, inspired by Victor Vasarely. Here are the artistic influences indicated by the compass of the artist L'Atlas and which inspire him for his art. The budding museum invites us to explore them with this exhibition-travel through time and space, where we stroll around to discover the work of the artist L'Atlas. Attracted since time immemorial by maps and travel, The Atlas' artistic approach was marked from childhood by books on astronomy and geography. In the 1990s, he became involved in graffiti culture and learned Arabic and Chinese calligraphy. It marks the floors and walls of cities with huge compasses: roses of graphic winds made of white lines on grey asphalt that are inspired by Kufic architecture and writing. His work is at the crossroads of graffiti, calligraphy, geometric abstraction and optical art. With the help of a treasure hunt and a compass, the young visitors transform themselves into small explorers and follow in the footsteps of the inspirations of The Atlas. They will carry out their own archaeological excavation, create their blaze on a signboard, live a new immersion experience thanks to Virtual Reality and travel with the artist, discovering all the techniques and media he uses. Enough to experience a great and beautiful artistic journey!
