Interdit is a unique artwork on canvas by French DJ and artist, Narotones. Having made quite the name for himself in the French music scene as a DJ. Naro wanted to achieve the same success as an artist. Which he has accomplished this by incorporating music fliers and posters into his collage-style.
Interdit is French for Prohibited. Working with weathered promotional advertising, posters and ephemera. Pasted on to the walls of buildings which clearly are ‘interdit’, or prohibited. Naro removes the element of illegality that the advertising held, by removing and recycling of the posters. There is a process of clearing and cleaning, returning the property to its original state.
Residing in Grenoble, a city in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of southeastern France. It sits at the foot of mountains between the Drac and Isère rivers.
Narotones says about Interdit and other works:
I am highly influenced by the worlds of music and fashion and aim to make this obvious within my artworks. Collaging many different parts of a collection of old music fliers, adverts and posters creates a newer, fresher visual – more of an album or glossy magazine front cover vibe.
