SYNERGY

Synergy : When photography and stencil interact

 [Synergy: interaction of elements to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects]

 “Synergy” is an artistic and social encounter between French street artist Jef Aérosol and British photographer Lee Jeffries.

SYNERGY

SYNERGY

Exhibition

Stemming from the original ‘Synergy’ exhibition that took place in Paris at Mathgoth gallery in March 2015, this collaboration casts a new light on a sensitive topic: the homeless.

artistic and social encounter

The artistic chemistry was sparked when the two artists first met in London, early 2014. Mesmerized by Lee Jeffries’ portraits of homeless people, Jef Aérosol contacted the photographer when they immediately decided to combine their work. They both felt the urge to explore and share with the public their vision of this universal issue. Together, they explore faces and confront techniques to give another life to the forgotten of the streets.

The result is an incredibly harmonious project. Lee Jeffries’ powerful yet delicate portraits lend themselves perfectly to stencilling, allowing Jef Aérosol to reinterpret the characters’ faces and stories.

The movement given by Jef Aerosol’s stencil complements the stillness and gravity of Lee Jeffries’ portraits. The detail, the singularity, the strength of the pieces will leave the audience moved and startled. The show features individual works as well as several four-handed pieces, for a combined effect that is truly ‘greater than the simple sum of its parts’.

 

French art studio is proud to present for the first time in the UK, Jef Aérosol and Lee Jeffries’ exhibition, Synergy.

Bonjour Bernie,
Un artiste que je ne connais pas,
Espérant qu'il recueille la notoriété qu'il mérite dans sa vie,
Une belle journée à vous,
David,
