Graffiti Machine – Tribute to New York

While Urban-art enjoys a worldwide success, the idea is to focus on the tag, brutal, primitive, the most rejected and misunderstood discipline of graffiti. Practical of insiders, few know how to decode, to enjoy.
DrColors presents “Graffiti Machine” for the first time in the exhibition “A Nous York” (Lille, October 2014 / January 2015).
Created from recycled materials (wood, skateboard wheels, DIY meters), it reproduces a selection of famous New York tags such as False, Guns, Pear and Taki 183. An accumulation, until saturation. Pure Tag, without artifice. Signature. The essence of Graffiti. This artistic experience try to reproduce the mechanical movement, the repetition, the compulsive gesture of the tagger.
