LEMOUVEMENT is a street art crew composed of various artists coming from different background (painters, graffiti artists, illustrators, photographers and art directors). Questioning human relationships in urban space, LEMOUVEMENT is focused on diversity and « living together ».
LEMOUVEMENT’s major artwork, « the Umbrellas », by Riks, Tiez ans Romano, started in Paris three years ago and is still in the making. Uniting people from different origines, cultures, or générations under an umbrella, LEMOUVEMENT’s work is a mis of realism and poetry using « figuration narrative » and « photographic pasted-up technic ».
Performing its art across the streets, LEMOUVEMENT aims to bring people together by capturing meeting scenes of population. The street art crew performs in day light and constant get passers by involved in order to initiate meetings and dialogue.
