When street art invades the roof of the Grande Arche. A unique exhibition of XXL artworks, rare pieces, canvases and collaborations!
Engaged artist, Cyril Kongo has largely contributed to defend graffiti as a full-fledged painting school. Kongo’s paintings are marked by his experiences and his vision of life. After spending more than thirty years painting in the street and work to ensure that graffiti is perceived differently, he is now considered a visionary who knew how to break codes to better rebuild through his contemporary and avant-garde look.
His multicultural influences, his high standards and his ability to create links between the world’s poles have shaped his career and his style. Cyril Kongo’s name is synonymous with excellence, abundance and virtuosity. His singular world and hir assertive identity have given him the opportunity to join the most prestigious names in fashion, art and crafts. An urban artist first and foremost; Kongo is part of the first generation of Paris graffiti artists.
