MOMIES x MAYE / Banana Pschit Festival, LYON, FR.
On the occasion of the Banana Pschit festival, which took place from October 10 to 25, 2019 in Dijon, the Momies – Maye duo was reformed for a mural. These two artists come from the Montpellier vandal scene. Today both internationally recognized, each develops a distinct style.
Momies is recognizable by his “Modules”. Momies comes from the traditional graffiti scene. Passionate about lettering, he remains faithful to this original passion, while his style evolves towards abstraction and sophistication.
The letters have been stretched and refined to the point of becoming elusive and airy lines. The name and letters so dear to the traditions of graffiti have disappeared in favor of style and movement. The graffiti itself is reduced to the essential: spontaneity, speed of execution, visual impact.
Maye, on the other hand, passionate about drawing, will be recognizable by his filiform figures, elongated and flexible. An artist extremely attentive to detail, he will create imaginary worlds in his works.
This collaboration will give birth to a monumental mural where their styles mingle. Indeed, we find the modules of Momies predominantly in which are interposed a profusion of plant motifs made by Maye. The set made in a shades of ocher, thus blends into the urban landscape.
