Signal Gallery is delighted to be presenting the second solo show in London, by legendary French street artist Jef Aerosol. Jef is well known to London audiences, having appeared in a large number of group shows and in other venues for many years. Jef is a household name in his native land.  He has been in the vanguard of the vibrant French stencil art scene. His distinctive and elegant artworks have graced streets in France since 1982. Jef has continued to produce new work and develop his style and has shown all over the world. Recent shows in New York, Japan and Ireland are ample evidence of his irrepressible spirit and talent. For the show in Signal, called ‘Girls, Girls, Girls’, Jef is celebrating the female form in all its glory. Staying away from portraying celebrities, these women will anonymously represent their sex. The works on show will sometimes hark back to familiar poster imagery of ‘girls’ from the post-war years, while others will have a very contemporary feel. However, it’s certain that Jef’s innate elegance and charm will be strongly in evidence and show will be brimmed full of attractive and irresistible images. About the show, Jef says :

” This is a show dedicated to women, a sexy show, a sensual show… Women ‘s curves have always fascinated artists and I’m no exception! Being quite inspired by the aesthetics of the 50s and 60s, I’ve always felt attracted to the pinup style and the erotic imagery of those times. And sexy girls have also always been one main rock’n’roll source of inspiration. Later on, fishnets and lace have come back to the scene with the punk and goth trends. The women shown in those brand new pieces aren’t celebs or stars, but isn’t every woman a star? That’s the reason why you can see stencils of red stars in all those new paintings!”
