18 Dec 2019

The 2019 ADAGP / Palais de Tokyo Urban Art Revelation reward Road Dogs. The Outsider received a special mention.




In partnership with the Palais de Tokyo, ADAGP launched in 2019 the fourth edition of the Urban Art Revelation. This prize supports and promotes emerging creation in this artistic discipline.

The professional jury, chaired by Sylvie Debré-Huerre (succession of Olivier Debré), was composed of Alexandre Bavard (2016 winner), Adélaïde Blanc (curator of the Palais de Tokyo), Nicolas Gzeley (journalist), Paul Loubet (2017 winner), as well as the rapporteur Hugo Vitrani (curator at the Palais de Tokyo).

At the end of rich debates fueled by very high quality candidates, this jury distinguished the work of


Road dogs



The jurors hailed "the Road Dogs collective for their multiple means of expression which range from photo to video, including drawing, writing or publishing. Welded, very active and cultivating the mystery around their personalities, they generously share their experience of travel and exploration, referring to the little known universe of the Hobos of North America. A rich, abundant and joyful artistic proposal, without equivalent in the universe of urban arts. "


A special mention goes to L'Outsider for "his singular work of painting. With a strong and immediately recognizable aesthetic, the artist takes over lettering - already widely explored in graffiti - to build a new language based on gesture. Based on identified constraints (the use of a single tool, a limited chromatic range and the same process), he constantly renews his artistic proposals. A coherent and constantly evolving work. "


The Revelation will take place at the Palais de Tokyo as part of the Lasco Project and will receive an endowment of 5,000 euros.

The two winners will benefit from a video portrait filmed by Arte as well as a presentation of their work on the rails of the ADAGP.
