Artist of the moment…..L’Atlas

 

L’Atlas is a great street artist based out of Paris, France born in the year 1978. L’Atlas style is a blend of abstraction and typography, the art of the letter.

L’Atlas began doing graffiti as a youngster and would eventually study many different styles of typography. I have posted about typography many times as the Microsoft version of Helvetica seems to be everywhere, L’Atlas is a throwback to the days when typography and calligraphy were true arts. Many schools are don’t even teach cursive anymore.

If you enjoy text be sure and check out my posts on Mel Bochner and Robert Cottingham.

L’Atlas loves calligraphy!
