Pyromania Meets Art: Olivier Kosta-Théfaine ideo Profile with Olivier Kosta-ThefaineJuxtapoz // Saturday, 30 Oct 2010
On his website it explains, “In each of his interventions, Olivier Kosta-Théfaine plays with the codes and clichés of popular culture. He uses the languages and codes of the city and its suburbs, changing or modifying their original meaning so it can be understood by a broader public.
“His reflection is essentially based in rehabilitating the, often deconsidered, elements that belong to the city. His fascination for the suburbs has switched to a passion that is essential to his everyday work. The city is his muse, the drive for his artistic inspiration.”
