“You Rise” Solo Exhibition by JM Robert
17 December, 2020 - 27 February, 2021
Presenting at Hong Kong art gallery Art Supermarket, You Rise is the solo exhibition of selected works by French street and pop-artist JM Robert. The collection features distinctive portraits, rendered in JM Robert’s free-spirit characteristic, conveying a desire to rise and to be seen in the world of mediocrity.
Overlaid with splashes of spray paint, the series of woman portraits add a touch of modernness to our horizon. The mark making process is a representation of the artist JM Robert’s free spirit. Scratches and scrapes repeatedly occurring on the canvases mimic the spontaneity of contemporary dance movement and the intensity of performers’ body strength. The dashing and dripping give hints of the artist’s presence and his fluorescent character.
