Ella and Pitr's Playful Monsters

May 11, 2017 - Jun 10, 2017Le Feuvre, Paris

French street artists Ella and Pitr currently have a collection of their collaborative works up at Le Feuvre in Paris called Au jour le jour pour toujours. The two have collaborated on a variety of projects in the past, from large scale street art pieces to smaller scale pieces like those in this show. Their paintings have been described as whimsical, playful, funny, free, and infectious, while also maintaining a sense of unnerving, as if the characters are capable of darker schemes. 

"They invite us to become lovers, lovers of our streets and communities, of stories, of the underdog’s small victories, of each other and ultimately, of life. They celebrate our ability to be free from the constraints that contemporary society places upon us, they show us that the frame, the boundaries, the politics and advertisements, the expectations and limitations placed upon us are as false as the materialistic gods we’re encouraged to worship."––Martyn Reed, founder of Nuart Festival
