Street Artist RUBBISH for Le M.U.R. in Paris

Posted on February 11, 2013

Rubbish, the French Street Artist who can work for endless hours to finely cut paper as intricately as lace, is taking his turn at the Le M.U.R wall in Paris right now.  Still pretty new to the scene, the Besançon based artist has a meticulous cutting method influenced by painting, mythology, even Art Nouveau. Recent portraiture subjects have been poets from the Beat Generation like Burroughs, Kerouac, Ginsberg, but he is more of an emotional romantic than they were.

With his first solo show in November at Le Cabinet d’Amateur, this guys’ work may remind you of Swoon’s paper cutting in the late 2000s and his portraits have a forlorn quality found in the subjects of French stencilist C215.  Whatever his influences, he is clearly still exploring and he happily covered selected regions of this 8 meter x 3 meter wall with with a certain organic symmetry in placing these large works of cut paper on a cold late January day. According to Jean Emmanuel Voltz, who curated this choice, this kind of Rubbish is a “Good discovery”.
