Biography / STF

The Marseille based artist, Stéphane Moscato, tirelessly walks the streets peeling off whole sections of posters which he then fixes onto canvas in his studio. Then begins a creative dialogue with the support as a random word, part of a face or colour stands out. The artist uses stencils but refuses the reproducible character of the technique by composing works which are unique (never reproduced) and polysemiotic. He lets himself be guided by the meaning which emerges from these fragments of the street.

Strongly inspired by punk rock culture, he also proposes a social and political commitment which is implicit in his work. An interesting balance with the way he adapts classical mythology in a new narration.

He is represented in France by OPENSPACE gallery in Paris and D.PLUSKWA gallery in Marseille, and in Switzerland by the G. DAEPPEN Gallery in Basel."
