BEAT SURRENDER

Come on boy, come on girl
Succumb to the Beat Surrender
All the things that I care about (are packed into one punch)
All the things that I'm not sure about (are sorted out at once)
And as it was in the beginning, so shall it be in the end
That bullshit is bullshit, it just goes by different names / THE JAM

"Beat Surrender" 130 X 81cms / RCF1 2013, Winterlong Galerie

Avaible through 'Le 4ème mur' by Winterlong Gallery

More and more people asking me questions about this blog/site Mod inspired banner, this post will for once look a bit back in time.

RCF1 'Born in the street' at Fondation Cartier 2009.
Spring 2009. After being asked by the Cartier Foundation team preparing the massive street-art exhibition that was to come, I had to think about the best way to show artwork in a space where people need to pay to see it.
French artist and friend Jean Faucheur then came up with the best and most relevant idea to display our work.
The eight by three meters painted paper poster remained shown in the foundation main hall for three weeks before it was sent back to the city, pasted up on a Oberkampf street wall for three more weeks before the next poster would then cover it.
So no, this is not a canvas and no, it doesn't exist anymore. Yes, it's Quadrophenia Jimmy Cooper on a Lambretta.

Thom-Thom from Le M.U.R association is the paste-up King.
