GUM (born in 1976).
Rising French street artist, Gum is an heir of the street, evolving in this world with his sole weapon: the spray paint can.
Happy, bubbly, playful,... plastic art is the focal point of his approach and the common point of his favourite themes: advertising, consumption, over-consumption, sex.
In his paintings, Gum redefines the prefabricated codes of a society in agony. Irony is used to divert, upset, highlight the contradictions of the consumption society and social schizophrenia, where nothing is in its place. And as our earth is submerged plastic and waste so are his works. The plastic is melting because of global warming, while the world looks the other way. "We continue to polish the chandeliers of the boat that is sinking, we are attracted by the bling, the glittery, the inflatable, the flying, while bombs fall around us!"
Gum draws for children and talks to adults. These 2 worlds blend in a stressful way. ‘Young people want to become old and the elders want to be young. There are candies that look like drugs, and drugs look like candy’- Gum talks about the loss of bearings, where no one can find their place, in a sanitised and indigestible over-consumption society, where the brutishness of the general consciousness makes us amorphous.
His art is his way to describe and denounce a world where time is running out.
Torn between the man and the boy, the artist of 38 evolves in this bipolarity and being his only resistance in the face of this world that he does not understand, is his refuse to grow up: his anthem becomes ‘Fuck Growing Up!’.
Gum and his unique ‘street art in my bedroom’ concept makes an explosive and provocative mix where childish references mix with a porn-chic universe in style.
