En savoir plus sur l’œuvre
With two decades of passionate graffiti practice behind him, artist Demais is constantly searching for letters that reflect his thoughts and emotions. The lithography Hate is composed of four letters H.A.T.E. in metallic and black colours on a red and orange background symbolising fire.
The shape of the letters, their details and their construction playing on the effects of depth and relief testify to the perfect mastery of the codes of graffiti. A black border runs from letter to letter, adding lightness and finesse to the whole. Touches of white add to the brilliance of certain parts, enlivening the piece and detaching the letters from their background. Demais has added small strokes judiciously placed to contribute to this effect of movement of the letters.
Finally, you will notice a discreet halo on the hat of the "A", a tribute to the people who are dear to the artist, taking up one of the symbolic codes of graffiti artists.
