French Urban Art: Aurèle, Lost in Los Angeles

The artist Aurèle (born Aurèle Ricard in 1963), also know by his creative pseudonym “Aurèle LostDog,” can be recognized by a certain power of assertion. If one word could undoubtedly define his relationship to the world, a word which animates both his work and his life, that would be: ACTION. 

Aurèle's collected works take on the appearance of a fight: a fight for Art as much as a fight for Life. Enraged and committed artist, Aurèle’s comprehensive work conveys a message of urgency and resistance to the plague of an era of which his "LostDog" becomes the symbol. Aurèle has been developing, for more than twenty-five years, the same radical project of denouncing modern wanderings. Its goal: to mobilize present and future generations in  the face of wars, epidemics, ecological catastrophes, political and media excesses, precariousness and exclusion, inequalities and overconsumption. In Aurèle's world, art confronts reality and thereby becomes a true "mirror of modernity.”

For his first solo exhibition in Los Angeles, Athenessa LA Gallery is presenting not only his Bull Terrier sculptures that made the artist famous but also a compilation of his "Lost Sentences" (works on paper) created over different periods of time, in several countries. To be noted, a beautiful collaborative series after an exhibition from French stencil artist ARTISTE OUVRIER.
