Last night in Paris, fine artist, designer and typographer Kevin Lyons opened Red, Gold, and Green at the influential and trendsetting gallery and retail hub, colette. The exhibition features Lyons now instantly recognizable humor and youthful wit, but when you begin to create your own style, it doesn't look so youthful anymore.

The show for colette features number of drawings, illustrations, paintings, prints, and installations that "explore the vibrant, colorful language of reggae and dancehall culture."

Colette writes "Lyons combines his formal interests and skills in illustrated simple characters, bold typography, and the fun rolling poetry of the language itself. The sheer volume, variety and repetition of this poetry and the visual screaming monsters who repeat it al throughout the space creates its own silly but heartfelt rhythm. Dancehall style bump and grind is encouraged."

Nice to know bump and grind is on the menu.
