At 60 years of age, and with 30 years of art under his belt, it’s only appropriate that Blek le Rat’s latest exhibition contains those numbers. Unaware of the eventual prominence his style would gain and motivated by the idea of using art to spread ideas of social consciousness, Blek’s first major move was the flooding of Paris with his signature piece: the silhouette of a rat. These vermin spread from the subways of the Périphérique to alleyways of Montmartre and could be seen all throughout the city. His latest exhibition at 941Geary Gallery which is on display through January 7, 2012 showcases his signature sensibilities with a dash of modern inspiration.
