Our art gallery POP MY DUKE supports contemporary artists from all over the world and offers them an exhibition space combining classic hangings with original scenographic installations. We strive to promote both major international names and talented young artists.
Our collectors particularly appreciate our expertise in our favourite artistic movements:
The term Street art has been used since the first tags and graffitis appeared in the US in the 60s/70s (although such kind of art has been existing since prehistoric times with the cave paintings).
Young artists from working-class neighbourhoods used walls and public transport as their medium of expression. Over time, street art evolved to include more elaborate forms, moving from simple tags to artistic murals.
Artists such as Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat helped legitimise graffiti as an art form in its own right.
Some artists, such as BANKSY, began to use more sophisticated techniques, such as stencils, enabling their work to be produced more quickly and distributed more widely.
Over the years, street art has gained institutional recognition. Art galleries and museums began to exhibit works, fully legitimising this form of expression.
Famous artists: Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, BANKSY, Invader, Shepard Fairey, JR, Vihls, Jonone
“Op art” or “Optical Art” has emerged in the 60s.
Optical art is a fascinating form of artistic expression that plays with visual perception in innovative ways.
The active engagement of the viewer aims at creating a dynamic and sometimes disconcerting visual experience. Works can appear to move, vibrate, undulate or change depending on the viewer’s perspective.
Famous artists: Maurits Cornelis Escher, Victor Vasarely, Bridget Riley, Yaacov Agam, Patrick Hughes, Patrick Rubinstein
