Our selection of original street-art, paintings, drawings, lithographs by Hopare

Hopare is a French artist who mixes abstraction and figuration. He travels and realizes his works all over the world. The MUR Grenoble is an association whose aim is the promotion of contemporary and urban art through the realization of renewable frescoes and exhibitions. Alexandre Monteiro aka Hopare, is an emerging artist of French Street-art. Born in 1989 in Paris, he inherited an influence for urban architecture and the human tourbillon. He spent his childhood in Limours, Essone, and discovered at 13 or 14 graffiti in an abandoned factory in the city. A former pupil of Shaka (known as Marcel Mithouard, street artist and visual artist), a close and decisive relationship is born. Barely 20 years old, he works for an interior architecture that, according to the artist, "influenced my way of drawing, with more and more straight lines, parallel or intertwining". The artist contributes to projects of interior designers, decoration or styling in textiles. He signed his first wall in 2006 and joined the TSF Crew (a major street art movement with joint projects and festivals). Accompanied by aerosol cans, brushes, inks or rolls of paints, Hopare celebrates aesthetics. Its lines, close to perfection, outline geometric and abstract curves. His works have a penciled character superimposing straight lines of great intensity. "What I'm looking for is the best-honed trait, the perfect diamond," says Hopare. He does not forbid the "freestyle" where improvisation guides his hand. Spontaneity and randomness lead to the construction of figurative elements of great virtuosity. Many projects are grafted to his street art: exhibitions in galleries ... the mayor of Limours assigns his first achievement by the signage of the new auditorium. He coordinates his first exhibition, the high impact: 30 paintings exposed including 23 sold. Eternal wanderer (from Montreal, Paris, Hong Kong keep track of his passage), the artist wishes in turn "to offer the viewer the opportunity to travel" attests to Hopare.
