France is crippled by arctic weather conditions and paralysed by the presidential elections delirium. Leaving Toulouse, Lyon and Paris, the prolific French graffiti crew Da Mental Vaporz (DMV) decide to conquer the oceans for sunny horizons down under. Aboard “Le Venin”, the DMV sailors consisting of Bom.k, Blo, Brusk, Dran, Gris1, ISO, Jaw, Kan, and Sowat are heading to Melbourne, Australia. Gathering their unique and distinctive style, the DMV crew form a gigantic nonapus, a nine-tentacles creature gifted with incredible energy, mastering many techniques with military precision. Momumental murals breathe through an explosion of colours, combining letters, throw-ups, calligraffiti or half-tone graffiti. Figurative paintings display a touch of dark humour while erotic characters transport the viewer to another dreamlike scenery. The DMV show will present a new body of works from all members, showcasing both collective paintings as well as individual works on paper and canvas. Here is a short video and more footage of the preparations after the jump, here and over at the RTIST Gallery´s Website! The Show runs until March 4th 2012!
