Jibé, the contemporary street artist ″up-cycles″ the walls of different cities in France by giving them new life and new meanings. He also creates up-cycled art, like the one exhibited in the Flucutart gallery in Paris, a beautifully lightened installation made of colourful plastic bags and cable sheaths. Painting on the walls of cities also represents a social engagement: exhibiting one’s work in public spaces creates not only a direct and immediate relationship between viewers and his works but it also opens a dialogue between the past, present and future uses of these spaces where people are not only viewers any more but also active users of these works, through interacting with them in different ways by ″up-cycling″ them into scenes for events, backgrounds for art photos or through an intimate use of the public space.
