French urban artist,  Thom Thom, has been taking Parisian billboards and transforming them into art since 2000. He is inspired by the French artist Jacque Villeglé, well known for his technique of décollage, the opposite of collage, whereby parts are ripped away from posters. Also by the Lettrists, an experimental movement established in Paris in the ’40’s,  and the Situationists,  a revolutionary group based on Marxist ideas.

Africa | Just one of the many lovely images from the publication Parures africaines (www.amazon.fr/...) published in 1956. | Although no details provided by Flickr user, Old Chum, most probably this photo was taken in Cameroon, as these look like Elephant Mask costumed men from the Bamileke people.

From 1960, in the Mariales series, Hantaï “blind” painted a pre-folded surface, covering it with colour: “This time colour is the principal form […]. The light seems to permeate the colour from behind, like stained glass. In truth, the colour is the light.” (Dominique Fourcade). From then on, each series of paintings made use of this method in very different ways, allowing Hantaï to develop and refresh formal and original compositions, often on a large scale. - Centre Pompidou

Inspired by artistic strategies of media infiltration, “Blow-up” explores the temporary spaces that open up in infotainment, the combination of information and entertainment purveyed by the media, public space and events, advertising, social networks and other codified systems. The exhibition questions the erasure of the boundary between the spectacular side of the information world and the territory of intimacy, resulting from the transition from Web 1.0 to Web 2.0.
