Karl Addison painted the Le M.U.R wall this week, the “M.U.R.” bit standing for Association Modulable, Urbain, Réactif. The wall and space generally is part of a highly successful local art project whose sole aim is to promote contemporary urban art in Paris’ Oberkampf district.
Karl’s work as part of JBAK, the successful long term collaboration between himself and James Bullough (I’m a big fan and have written about them a fair bit…), brought him to my attention a couple of years ago. I’ve always closely followed his work, and even went to check out his cool gallery and shop, idrawalot, in Neukolln a few years ago too.
A great space, but sadly no longer with us.
So having not caught much of his public work for a while, I was really pleased to see that he’d been asked to contribute to the popular Parisian wall (think Village Underground but Parisian). Good to see him doing well for himself!
This one represents a good friend of his, blending in typical autumnal colours and his distinctive line marks that define his brand of urban art. Check out the photos, courtesy of the artist, and the video from Le M.U.R. at the foot of the blog.
What do you reckon? Give us your thoughts as always!
Reblogged this on O LADO ESCURO DA LUA.
Thanks for the reblog!
Amazing huh? I’m a big fan of Karl’s work – check out more from him on his website http://www.addisonkarl.com.
Awesome … like a dramatic charcoal on black paper drawing blown up real big. Love it.
It is super nice – this spot where its painted has such a variety of artists work, worth keeping an eye out for!
You can see more of the artist at http://www.addisonkarl.com too.
Thanks for reading!
Wow. how long did it take him to reach the finished product? Also love the music – where can I find the song?
I’m not actually sure, you can ask the man himself at http://www.addisonkarl.com though! I’d say a couple of days maybe! The music will be available from Addison too – sorry I can’t be of more help!
Great art work.
Totally agree, one of my favourite pieces for a while!
Great art work
The dude can paint!
Agreed! Very much agreed!
