One of the 1980s street art wall stencils in Paris
History and Mystery in Paris Graffiti
NOVEMBER 7, 2014 - NOVEMBER 29, 2014

Photographer Alfa Castaldi (1926-1995), was one of the most prolific, innovative, and acclaimed artists of his generation. Known mainly for his political reportage, curious-minded street photography, and art-infused avant-garde fashion photocollage, Castaldi was a towering figure in the mid-century progressive creative scenes of Milan, Prague, London, and Paris.

Castaldi made several visits to Paris in the 1980s on a personal project to document the burgeoning street art scene, including artists like Blek Le Rat, Jef Aerosol, MissTic and Speedy Graphito.

This exhibition contains a selection from Castaldi's thorough photographic survey of the works of these stencil (or "pochoir") artists.
