Dubai’s newest luxury home concept store and interior design studio, En Vogue, is proud to host the art gallery of Paris ‘Artist of the new street art ‘, Jerome Revon. Jerome will be in Dubai to open the gala on the 18th of March and the exhibition will run for a month.
“I hope people from Dubai will enjoy my photos of tags and graffitis entangled in a festival of colour,” says Jerome Revon. “A lot of my work is based on contemporary urban architecture and this city reflects its modernity. I describe Dubai as an Arabic Manhattan. The spirit of the city is so inspiring and it’s an exciting place to be,” he added.
Rewarded with two 7 d’Or and honoured with the orders of Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, Jerome is among the most important artists of this era in Europe. He had exhibited his works in numerous galleries and has imposed his style in the world of contemporary photography. Jerome also plays an important role in the television industry in Paris. He directs and produces important shows for national television such as presidential speeches, elections, historical debates and even the wedding of HSH Albert of Monaco.
He is renowned for his photographic technique called, SPLITS, which is the first artwork featured above. He discovered this style during his teenage years when he started to develop his love for photography. He used to cut the black and white photos into strips so as to reconstruct them afterwards, one strip next to another.
The second one is a collaboration with an American grafitti artist JonOne, John Andrew Perello, which has an allegory of the urban jungle, but always seen from the optimist and colorful side of life.
These pictures are produced by an argentic process on a special metallic paper. Then glued under Diasec (sandwiched between an aluminum plate and a plexiglas) and mounted on a flush wood in black paint and polished.
