Street Monsters ? That’s urban art realised by children under the guidance of the artist CyKlop.
The artist CyKlop gave classes to young children from 6 to 10 years old, at Saint-Maur school in Paris, and all directed by Jean François Bouabbas, their visual art teacher.
At the end of the course, the « monsters » created by the children have benn installed in the Morvan Street (Paris 11) on 92 bollards by CyKlop himself, who also painted the eye on each of them.
This artistic installation will become a « street monsters » realised by a new generation of street artists!
Street Monsters, is not only in the streets!
That’s also an exhibition, imagined by CyKlop at the UNIVER Gallery.
The children become real artists exhibiting their pieces of Art with drawings of their monsters, pictures of them, tehir portrait with their monsters once installed in the street.
Others surprises are waiting the visitors…
