On Saturday April 25, 2009, two major players in the street art scene open a duel exhibition at Paris’ Galerie Magda Danysz. Dalek and Mike Giant both found their artistic impulse through graffiti, and have both developed unique individual styles. Giant, of course, is influenced heavily by black and grey tattooing. Dalek is more rooted in graffiti, though pushes his work beyond its traditional base. The exhibition will run until May 23, 2009, and fits the gallery’s mission of promoting up and coming figures in contemporary art to new audiences.
Galerie Magda Danysz, 78 Rue Amelot, Paris.
Examples of both artists follow.
