Last April, artist Levalet (formerly) led the Roads Street Art Festival this year, which brought together street mosaics, basketball, DJs and more in Orleans, France. For the festival, Levalet (aka Charles Leval) created several new works of artisanal paper and Indian ink that include a large-scale chamleon, postmen dressed in suits of dangerous materials and a packed car on the side of a hole in a glass elevator .
Levalet continues its tradition of producing life-size works or larger than life, while at the same time injecting humor into these urban additions. In another new job for Orleans, a man rests on an electrical box while filming with an old-school camera. “Cinema” is painted behind the resting man, which adds a humorous inclination to the film obsessed with selfies of the subject in black and white.
The artist has an upcoming solo exhibition titled “The Big Gaité”, which opens at Maison Triolet Aragon in Saint Arnoult-en-Yvelines, France on May 26. You can follow more of Levalet’s public facilities on its website and Facebook.
