    Frédéric Platéus went from graffiti artist in 2000 to the creation of sophisticated pieces, hailed as brilliant and smooth.

    Extravagant Traveller is one of his new projects, through which he travels between the street and the museum.

    The title of the exhibition is a reference to a song by rapper Kool Keith, describing a traveller, whose appearance and markings have given him 'legend status'.

    The artist unveils a supersonic device and "Watch me now!"

    It is, according to Platéus, a contemporary art translation of this egoism as well as the flamboyant aesthetics of the hip hop culture.

    Laid out on a trailer rather than a stand, this prototype futurist vessel is in opposition with the much more classically designed vehicle that is pulling it.

    Three films being projected in the exhibition show the dynamic of this art piece that is destined to travel and impress as many people as possible.
