Artist: Ernest Pignon-Ernest

Ernest Pignon-Ernest (born 1942) is a Fluxus and Situastionist French artist, born in Nice.

Since 1966, using paste-ups, he creates ephemeral images on the walls of the large cities that make echo the events there. He is one of the initiators of the Urban Art in France, 25 years before Banksy, and as much as sensitive to injustices. His themes cover abortion (Tours, Nice, Paris, 1975), expelled people (Paris, 1979), AIDS ( Soweto, 2002), The Apartheid and what happened in Nagasaki / Hiroshima. His main inspiration comes from Caravaggio and we can say that he masters his technic.
