This show will present the body of work from three artists: Brazilian artist L7M; rising figure in urban and contemporary art, Hopare; and by Montpellier-based artist Fode. These urban creatives will display their diverse individual sensitivities by evoking a variety of perceptions and emotions. Through abstraction, figuration and dynamic lines graphics, these artists will illustrate the very core of this exhibition.
Both of these creative giants were very active this year, when it comes to displaying their skillfulness and visual energy. In addition to decorating the walls of major capitals in Europe, L7m participated in number of exhibitions. In May this year, he conjoined with Rodrigo Branco in the exhibition titled Breaking Borders that took place at 44309 Street Art Gallery.

He was also a part of major Graffiti Festival titled Ono’U, which took place on Tahiti, Place Toata.

In 2001 he presented his work in a group exhibition for the first time at Galerie Saint Ravy in Montpellier. Fode is now considered to be the key figure in the France national art scene, a contemporary artist with familiar face. His innovative approach in writing graffiti made him a desirable participant in many festivals such as Meeting Of Style, Attitude, BOTY, etc.
