MAYE (FR)

INSTAGRAM : @maye_name_is_maye

Victorien Liria, aka Maye, was born in Sète in 1990. With a passion for drawing, he began expressing himself in the streets of Montpellier (France) with graffiti, where he has been developing his research into lettering since 2004.

Influenced by the local scene, he took advantage of every encounter to keep learning, and succeeded in making a place for himself among his peers. His determination and talent enable him to quickly improve his skills on the walls. Self-taught in painting, Maye moved from wall to canvas in 2013. He works on both supports in a complementary way. Painting on canvas allows him to use the experiments he has developed on temporary supports and enables him to build his work perennially. Unlike walls, canvas are made to last. Maye takes advantage of it to deploy his eye for detail and story-telling. His work on canvas takes us on a journey through allegorical scenes, inspired by his personal experiences, memories, and imagination.

A perfectionist, Maye likes to play with image depth, lighting effects, and materials to create landscapes in which nature covers the ruins of a futuristic world. The confrontation between technology and lush vegetation reminds us of the fragile relationship between humans and nature. His sets are inhabited by lanky, supple, curvaceous figures. Their highly detailed garments partially reveal their semi-mechanical bodies. Like their environment, these men and women are composed of natural and artificial elements. The blossoming interaction between these human figures and the animals that surround them contrasts with the surrounding chaos and brings a touch of hope. This optimism is also reflected in his use of pastel colors, their warmth and light burst forth in several places.

Other 2024 INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS


TRON (CZ)

MICHAL ŠKAPA (1978) is a visual artist from the collective associated with Prague’s Trafo Gallery and MeetFactory, who has been preoccupied with urban structures for much of his career. Over time his interest in this topic, sparked at the beginning of the 90ies by his involvement in graffiti, grew into a broader range of artistic expression and contexts. This was greatly influenced by stays in the United States (2000) and Sao Paulo, Brazil (2005). He has been able to gradually transform his visual inspiration, based predominantly on rigorous mapping of authentic subcultures, into a unique language which has become typical of his art to the present day.

JAUNE (BE)

Jaune is a stencil artist and urban interventionist from Brussels, Belgium. His work is based on the paradox between the visible and the invisible, with sanitation workers the main protagonists in his humorous installations and paintings – an idea that was born from his own experience working in the profession.

Despite performing an important public service in garish fluorescent clothing, Jaune observed that he and his colleagues existed in the background of our urban environment, becoming almost invisible to the average person. It was in 2011 that he decided to free these characters from their roles by symbolically placing them in ever more absurd and whimsical scenarios in and around the city streets.
