The Art of SP38

French performer, painter and street artist, who has been based in Berlin for the past 15 years is a creative individual deeply devoted to what he calls “urban poetry.” Through the power of repetition, the artist creates series of works, only seemingly identical, but with imperfections through which the artist expresses his reflection of the unique. The artist’s methodology is a representation of silk-printing, enriched with painting techniques. In addition, SP38 is known form the creation of his own typography. His work is often a mixture of simplified images adorned with in-your-face statements such as “I DON’T WANT TO BE U’RE FRIEND ON FACE-BOOK” or “BOMB AMERICA” and “MADE IN DREAM.” Embedding sarcastic and humorous statements into lighthearted situations, the artist manages to be an inspiring instigator of exciting debates.
