Goin - France


Goin, a French stencil artist with a deep-rooted punk legacy, introduces the atmosphere and values of his artistic domicile, the famous Abode of Chaos, near Lyon. He mixes graphics and typography with violent and chaotic panache to produce stunning results. According to the New York Times the Abode of Chaos is 'one of the most important and most emotional artistic adventures of the 21st Century'.

Goin describes his work as being 'a subversive bomb, an initiation into the critical spirit and the approach of a new type of abrasive and denunciatory art'. At the French location, over 3,123 works of art express the alchemical chaos of the 21st Century in a free, open air museum. The unique venue has been the subject of an on-going law suit for over a decade and is set to continue in the European Court of Human Rights.

In perpetual mutation, Goin creates militant-powered pictures seen through the prism of a possessed graphic art.

"Goin dont je découvre le travail a clôt récemment son expo solo à Genève, DON’T RUST ME! dont mon choix de la semaine est issu. / I discovered  Goin’s work a few days ago through this artwork which was on display in his solo show DON’T RUST ME!."
