L'Esprit Du Mur by KRM at The Sultan Gallery in Kuwait
The French-German artist duo Chérif and Geza
Following on from a stellar month in the Middle East concerning all things artisitc, Buro 24/7 shines a spotlight on KRM; a French-German artist collective duo, known otherwise as Chérif and Geza. Together they create imaginary walls on wood and their concept and style, also known as 'Esprit Du Mur', is a rebellious, urban art, based on human tragedy and the complexity of existence.
In a new exhibit at The Sultan Gallery in Kuwait, the pair reveal a portrait of city-life that freely expresses interior contradictions – suffering and joy. Their work is iconoclast, based on overlapping images, words and impulsive gests.
Always creating their pieces with four hands on the same artwork defines the duo's working process and makes their confrontation 'authentic'. The idea is that they overlap each other until 'fragility is stabilised'.
The final result is an assembly of colour, much emotion and different techniques. The work witnesses a contemporary actuality and treats social-political subjects and questions.
