Following up his San Juan Puerto Rico residency in 2018, French contemporary artist Alexandre Bavard (aka Mosa87) teamed up once again with the Global Creative House JUSTKIDS to reveal the first edition of his signature Neo-Archeologic sculpture series, entitled NEO-K. 19. The 12 unique plaster sculptures, hand-painted in acrylic, are presented in their personalized boxes, available to collectors on June 7th at 10 am EST through

The sculptures are cast on original plates of the famed National Society of French Railways that inspired generations of writers, making a strong connection to Bavard's practice of graffiti, as he is part of the PAL Crew under the acronym Mosa87 along artists Tomek, the late Saeio, Horfé, Keno, Esso, and others. NEO-K.19, tells the story of a fictional archaeological discovery, exploring the connection between our memories and beliefs. Through his creative process, Bavard scours the streets of contemporary and historic urban landscapes reworking objects and “state or public property” into vestiges of futuristic artifacts, unveiling new possibilities and connections between space, objects, memory, and meaning.

The urban, social and phycological context of cities has inspired Bavard's visual and performative body of work. The artist reveals the thoughts that founded his NEO-K. 19 series as “Winter 2019. Paris suburbs. Near a railroad, in a wasteland, diggers revealing curious artifacts. Vestiges of a future or forgotten past. Found after a search, in a vacant lot. The perceptible radioactivity.”

Alexandre Bavard is one of the most significant contemporary French artists bridging the process of outdoor work into compelling pieces of art and performative bodies of work. JUSTKIDS Editions is a unique platform where burgeoning collectors can find the most exclusive and pertinent pieces by contemporary art figures.
