Butterfly and 100Taur at a French Monastary : 15 For 2015

Butterfly and 100Taur at a French Monastary : 15 For 2015


What are you celebrating this season? We’re celebrating BSA readers and fans with a holiday assorted chocolate box of 15 of the smartest and tastiest people we know. Each day until the new year we ask a guest to take a moment to reflect on 2015 and to tell us about one photograph that best captures the year for him or her. It’s our way of sharing the sweetness of the season and saying ‘thank you’ for inspiring us throughout the year.

Butterfly is the editor and founder of the French Street Art site called ButterflyArtNews and she is also an occasional contributor of photographs and observations on BSA. A voracious documenter of the Street Art scene around the world whose work has been published in books, magazines, and blogs, this year Butterfly co-curated a London show with two French artists, 100Taur and Hisham Echafaki. A highlight for 2015 was her comprehensive and personal coverage of Banksy’s Dismaland on her site, on BSA, and in a 30 minute documentary with Lars Pederson for the French / German TV Channel ARTE

Dominican Monastery, district of Toulouse Rangueil, France.
July 2015
Artist: 100Taur
Photograph by Butterfly

I selected this picture because of the unlikely collaboration between the two worlds  religion and street art and they share a message of open mindedness and peace and it also recognizes street art as being as sacred as other art movements throughout history.

100Taur, St Dominic, and Friars All Friends in France

100Taur, St Dominic, and Friars All Friends in France

Street Artist 100Taur (pronounced centaur) is following in the steps of many artists historically who have used their talent in service of religion – with this new image of Saint Dominic on the entrance of a monastery in France.

A Spanish priest and the founder of the Dominican order, Saint Dominic is the patron saint of astronomers as well as those falsely accused, goes back in Toulouse history to the year 1215 where he first established his order with 6 followers.

Says photographer and Street Art observer Butterfly, “The artist studied the iconography of St. Dominic and incorporated many symbols including a lily flower for purity, the Toulouse cross, as well as his signature ‘Slug ‘character, symbol of resilience.”

She tells us that the new mural was officially blessed during a ceremony in the district of Toulouse Rangueil before an audience of church folk and graffiti and Street Art fans.

“It was a quite surreal experience and a lesson in open mindedness,” says Butterfly.
