CULTURE - Après Rabat, Essaouira et Marrakech, c'est au tour du désert de se parer de grandes fresques murales. Les artistes américains David Choe, El Mac, Mars1, Andrew Hem, Aaron Horkey et Esao Andrews sont venus dans le sud du Maroc fin avril et début mai, notamment à Ouarzazate et Agdz, pour recouvrir de peintures colorées les murs de vieilles kasbah.
Ils ont également profité de leur passage dans le royaume pour visiter les studios de cinéma de Ouarzazate pour un éventuel futur projet vidéo. David Choe, connu pour avoir repeint les murs des premiers bureaux de Facebook, compte aujourd'hui près de 450.000 fans sur le réseau de Mark Zuckerberg et plus de 150.000 followers sur Instagram. Il a partagé sur les réseaux sociaux une série de photos de ces oeuvres monumentales.
As i fly i over the the Saharan African desert ,on a plane with #elmac #Esao #aaronHorkey #mars1 #andrewHem #Dvs1 @pacoRaterta @jaworskiJason I arrogantly think out loud to everyone in earshot, that if for some reason this plane were to get shot down the only artists left would be stencilists and wheatpasters . that doesnt happen so my good friend/worst enemy, #ART gets to live on, and my homemade human art Bomb gets dropped in #Casablanca ,my next thought as we take a magic carpet ride into the sand dunes is that I've never been in an orgy with all dudes , but this is probably the closest I get 7 sweaty tan guys in the middle of nowhere getting wet and dirty mixing fluids and overlapping shapes and rainbows of colors , we are color ambassadors #docking... in a bus with 7 mentally disturbed but dashingly handsome and touched by the hand of God type talent ,men, I don't know what types (I do ) of #emotional #sexual #physical #drug ,or #spiritual abuse and trauma occurred in these young men's lives that shaped their psyche and worldview ,That blessed them with the skill set to #destroy people's hearts and minds with the ability to accurately express on man made walls what's inside their cartoonish heads,.To retreat into that safe space in their minds where they could spend countless hours honing their craft into a visual vocabulary where they can control their new worlds, destiny, and fate in an amalgam of #alchemy and #sorcery the amazing hand eye coordination that goes from thought/dream to fingertips . As I write this on my phone in front of the bus I look back at each one of their faces and am humbled by the level of sheer creativity and awesomeness they've each in their own ways unleashed on to this mortal plane , the only other overwhelming thought above this thought, is that it's truly unfair how good looking each one of them is , to be blessed with perfect bone structure and can control #notfair #God does not ration out his gifts equally #lifesNotFair , as I finish writing these thoughts I am still staring into each one of their eyes uncomfortably long , I can't tell you how handsome each one is to me , my thoughts are finished for the day but I contin
Nice to meet you, where you been? I could show you incredible things Magic, madness, heaven, sin I know you heard about me So hey, let's be friends I'm dying to see how this one ends Grab your passport and my hand I can make the good guys bad for a weekend So it's gonna be forever Or it's gonna go down in flames You can tell me when it's over If the high was worth the pain They'll tell you I'm insane 'Cause you know I love the players And you love the game Cause we're young and we're reckless We'll take this way too far It'll leave you breathless Or with a nasty scar Got a long list of ex-lovers They'll tell you I'm insane But I've got a blank space, baby And I'll write your name I could show you incredible things Stolen kisses, pretty lies Screaming, crying, perfect storms I can make all the tables turn you'll come back each time you leave 'Cause, darling, I'm a nightmare dressed like a daydream Boys only want love if it's torture Don't say I didn't say, I didn't warn you
