Bates Bjorndahl Flyer Appreciation For Letters

Maquis-Art Shop & Gallery and Maurice Grinbaum presents: Bates & Bjorndahl: “Appreciation for Letters”

Here’s the story behind the exhibition:

Bates and Niels Bjorndahl first met in 1984 when the graffiti scene was still in its infancy in Denmark. They became fast friends and ran together thru 1986 when Bjorndahl was forced to put an end to his graffiti career due to numerous run-ins with the local authorities. Bjorndahl then changed his focus to abstract art while Bates continued on with graffiti.

In 2009 the two met again and started exchanging ideas and in the fall of 2011 they decided to try to work on some canvases together merging abstract art and graffiti, seemingly creating a new style. The result became a number of pieces where the artists experiment with different color dogmas and unusual types of canvases. If you’re in Paris on the 15th, come thru to the opening with some bread and some bread, if you know what I mean.

Official opening:
May 15th 2012, 11 o’clock.
