The Art Of Philippe Echaroux: Painting With Lights
In Marseille, France, the street-art takes on a new dimension with “Street Art 2.0″, a project by French photographer Philippe Echaroux that combines the idea of light painting and graffiti, turning everyday scenery and landscapes into beautiful temporary pieces of street art.
Haunting faces have been appearing on buildings, trees, hillsides and walls through a system of video projection, illuminating the city with ephemeral portraits of french celebrities like Zinedine Zidane, the famed Juventus and Real Madris soccer player who joined Echaroux for the launch of this project.
Explaining “Street Art 2.0.”, Philippe says: “My goal was, as a photographer, to give back the light I captured every day”. Through this project, his goal was to give some light back to the world in the form of art that’s “real” and “touchable” and also to provide a different kind of street art, a non-destructive one: “In my street art vision, I am aiming to produce an art that never gives any clue of its passage. I mean doing some street art, yes, but non-destructive one. I love the Banksy work, and all the graffiti style, I just don’t feel like doing the same”.
