A child vandalising a wall, another one urinating against a church wall, a yob being assailed by an elderly at a street corner while the ostrich-mounted police is keeping a watch a few steps away… This project in an ongoing change process, plays with the spaces and opportunities opened by the street environment. These drawings sketched with black chalk at 1/1 scale, offer a trompe-l'oeil through their sheer realism.
Posted at man's height, accessible and emphasizing the relation to space rather than visibility they create urban scenes and tell stories.
The realism of these drawings and their social dimension are somewhat in stark contrast with the way the idea is being treated, which is more often than not imbued with humour and poetry, as in the case of the soldier depicted just as he is about to shoot at rabbits in a cartoon, or this cow-boy camping at the heart of the city just as if he were in the middle of a desert. These trompe-l'oeils play with spaces and situations and turn our roads into a unique locus of creation and fun.
