>>> BUST THE DRIP - BIOGRAPHY
Alexis Bust Stephens, known as Bust The Drip, is a French artist born in 1983.
It comes from a crossbreeding between France and Jamaica. Her childhood was multicultural, multilingual, bathed in music and dance in the suburbs of Paris.
Very early on he trained in hip hop, a discipline that he still practices professionally.
It is the vibrations of the music that animate it, and the dance that inspires it. In his works, he transcribes the movements of the dancers in lines and volutes, the bodies twist, stretch, swirl, lengthen before his eyes and under his pencil.
Recreating the movement of bodies, Bust The Drip combines gesture with the projection of paint. Inspired as much by abstract expressionism as by graffiti, his way of painting is extremely gestural and energetic; both technical and instinctive. On canvas, his compositions combine spray, acrylic, pencil... He speaks of his painting as a choreography of lines and traces.
He has had several exhibitions, participated in numerous events such as the Urban Art Fair, was invited to numerous urban festivals in France and abroad, and made a fresco for the Brilliant Minds event in Stockholm in 2019 whose guest of honor was Barack Obama.
In 2023, it is selected to enter the collections of the Olympic Museum of Lausanne in Switzerland in order to represent the arrival of the Hip-Hop discipline at the Olympic Games.
