The relationship of mankind and nature is expressed by both artists in their own style and imagery.
ROCKET01 is a street artist based in Sheffield (UK), who looks back to 20 years of experience in graffiti. In his work he creates a fantasy world of the future and combines science with nature in his motifs. As a regular guest at streetart festivals across Europe (Bristol Upfest, We All Write Festival, Urban Nation Berlin), he has built up a large international fan community. His work has been exhibited in group and solo shows in numerous galleries. He transfers his characters into a surreal aquatic world and shows underwater scenes, slightly blurry for the viewer. Blood-red poppy flowers under water as well as birds pass like flying fish. ROCKET01’s helmeted protagonists cycle with fish, coexist alongside hyenas and make friends with badgers. A future vision of a new relationship between man and nature.
Benjamin Duquenne aka AMIN is a self-educated artist based in Roubaix, a city in Northern France, located in the Lille metropolitan area. Since 2006 he works as full time artist and has received many awards, most recently in 2018 the ‘Mise à l’honneur’ by the city of Roubaix, where he lives and works. His works depict mostly oversized natural elements such as grasses and plants, creating a fascinating change of perspective for the viewer, who feels to be transferred to a deep-green jungle.
Exhibition runs until 7.6.2018
