Horfe, January 2012

Vault // Thursday, May 09, 2013
This weekend in NYC, one of our favorite graffiti artists, Horfe, will be joining others in a group show at Klughaus Gallery. One of the reasons we have always admired the works of the Parisian artist is his mixture of classic animation and illustration to a public medium, creating a unique and prolific body of work on the streets. Here is our interview with the artist from January 2012.

'Villes Eteintes,' Darkened Cities by Thierry Cohen

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 10, 2013
Paris-born artist Thierry Cohen's series Villes Eteintes depicts major cities of the world with no light pollution, no lights of any kind. Thierry employs a technique that requires him to document the exact time, angle, latitude and longitude of each exposure and then track the rotation of the earth to locations with clear night skies such as the Mojave, Sahara, and Atacama deserts. By combining the two images, the photographer has produced a truly profound work that asks us to reflect both spiritually and politically.
