Samuel Bosseur - Winner of the Urban Art Revelation 2021

21 Dec 2021

The Urban Art Revelation ADAGP / Palais de Tokyo 2021 was awarded to Samuel Bosseur, for his work which develops a committed and complete work.

In partnership with the Palais de Tokyo, ADAGP launched the Urban Art Revelation, intended to support and promote the creation of emerging artists in this artistic discipline.
This year, the jury, co-chaired by Jean-Michel Alberola (artist) and Joan Punyet Miró (Miró estate), was composed of Antonio Gallego (artist), Yoann Gourmel (curator of the Palais de Tokyo), Stéphanie Lemoine (journalist and art critic), Alexander Raczka (2020 winner), Road Dogs (2019 winners) assisted by rapporteur Hugo Vitrani (curator at the Palais de Tokyo).
After careful consideration of the many applications, the jury distinguished:

Peintures assemblées/ Ambazada/ Grande fête en soutien aux soulèvements de la terre/ ZàD de Notre Dame des Landes/ 2021 – crédit photo : Samuel Bosseur

The jury praised the artist's total commitment in his various artistic practices, in particular “his solidarity work with a local establishment, in particular in his relations with the ZAD of Notre-Dame-des-Landes, which illustrates the interest of the artist for the collective in all its forms ”.
Samuel Bosseur's artistic research is articulated between personal practice of graffiti, painting and drawing, and collective experiences of work, parties and struggle.
The jury also wished to give a special mention to the duo formed by Julien Calemard and Thami Nabil. "The inventiveness of the forms, the audacity, and the singularity of the language developed by the two artists, always in constant experimentation" marked the jury.
Samuel Bosseur will perform at the Palais de Tokyo as part of the Lasco Project and will receive an endowment of 5 000 euros. He will also benefit from a video portrait filmed by Arte as well as a presentation of his work on the walls of the ADAGP.
