Do these cat murals look familiar ? Join us at the gallery Galerie Brugier-Rigail for an evening devoted to street art ! You will get to meet the one everyone knows but never sees… the street-artist Thoma Vuille Aka M. Chat! More than 80 Parisian walls are covered with his yellow grinning cats. The pieces of art part of this show called “PARISEOUL” evoke the streets in all corners of the world which are the territory of these grinning feline figures.
Today, the artist and this animal have become an indivisible whole. Who is M. Chat? The artist or the character? Or is it both? Whether he is alone, with or without wings, M. Chat has become an urban symbol bringing joy and optimism to the cities he is represented in. His fame has allowed for variations, changing colours and postures but with a strong identity. His need for wings is explained by the inaccessible places in which he is represented. M. Chat will, in the presence of the gallery director, give you the stories behind his new exhibit. The gathering will end with some social time and a glass of Taittinger Champagne.
The smiling feline that everyone has already encountered on a Parisian street evokes Lewis Caroll
