THE 4 ELEMENTS
“The 4 Elements” collection refers to the 4 elements of hip hop born in 1973 which are DJing, MCing, Breakdancing and graffiting.
These 4 prints were born after a trip to Los Angeles in March 2022 where we were invited to paint 4 walls as part of an immersive exhibition on graffiti and streetart.
On each of these 4 walls we paint our interpretation of the 4 elements of Hip-hop with personal inspirations and our own experiences.
MODOS DE VER
How is the way we see things now? Now in 2022?
Why do we see the world as no one has seen it before?
If we think why this is so, we will see something about ourselves and the situation in which we live.
The view depends on habit and convention.
Now it all depends on the eye of the beholder and what each of us sees, what we call 'reality'.
But the human eye can only be in one place at a time.
In this way, we each create our own reality.
Our ways of seeing affect our way of interpreting.
And we agree with that.
However, we like to think that despite the various and sometimes opposing ideas we may have on the same subject, they are all valid.
And accepting the way of seeing the other is not an easy exercise!
Often we will find ourselves in a situation where the person we are talking to has a totally different vision from ours even though we are talking about the same thing!
And that's where everyone's interpretation comes in.
Each of us has tools that come to us from childhood, from our education, from our life experiences that we will use to interpret a situation.
This has happened to us several times, and it continues to happen to us, when someone comments with us on one of our artworks.
And if initially what they see is not what we wanted to convey, in most cases, the new vision of the artwork they deliver to us gives us food for thought.
We do not mean by this that we should change our minds at the slightest confrontation, but open our minds to different interpretations to enrich our vision of things.
Dourone has been around since 1999 as a solo artist, but in 2012 he joined forces with Elodie creating a DUO.
This year 2022 we have been working together for 10 years and we have created a special edition for the anniversary.
