Aiiroh - October 24 to November 4, 2018
Lilac Gallery New York is pleased to present “Aiiroh Pop” an exhibition of works by Aiiroh, French pop/street artist from October 24 to November 4, 2018, presenting an exciting collection of beautiful and iconic subjects mixing the culture of the street with pop art.
Aiiroh at a young age, started as a graffiti artist in train stations in several cities. Soon after, he was introduced to stencil work which made it possible to create art faster on the street. With a guidance of a friend, he eventually discovered the work of the “affichistes” such as Raymond Hains, Villeglé, Dufrêne and Rotella. The latter became a real obsession for the artist. Taking great inspiration from this movement, sometimes spending whole nights wandering to find and snatch the poster that he would like. And then adding his signature touch of optimism and color.
In some of his works, Aiiroh incorporates brands to remind us of current trends and how they may influence our daily lives. The anarchy of dripping, the turbulence of the compositions come to stand in contrast with the pure lines of the graphics of the brand logo, but also of the famous LOVE of the American artist Indiana. Juxtaposing the graphic strength of these logos with the unexpected effects of his artistic expression, if it would be to capture a collective unconscious challenging the establishment of our aesthetic codes.
For several years, Aiiroh has been exhibited in some twenty galleries in France as well as internationally (Switzerland, Italy, UK, Greece, Israel, USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan). His latest accomplishments have been commissions from large brands such as Ferrari.
