Nicolas Party_ Boys and Pastel_ Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh_ May - Jun

In exuberant colours Nicolas Party reimagined the gallery spaces beyond the limitations of a canvas. The exhibition Boys and Pastels is rather a ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ which encompasses murals, paintings and created a unique experience for the viewer. The Lausanne-born artist graduated from the MFA programme at the School of Art Glasgow, where he moved from his graffiti practice into paining with pastels.The exhibition’s lightness and intensity, is a contemporary ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ with strong references of art-historical motives.
