Discover Madame Mustache: The French Street Artist who juggles with words and images!

1 July 2019 0 By Séverine

Madame Mustache, for me, it’s an impromptu meeting at the corner of a street in my neighborhood. Discovering a French Street Artist at the bottom of your house, especially when you live in the district of La Chapelle in Paris, it’s not happening every day! Moreover, an artist quite different from Street Art that we usually see.

“Madame” does not do in pocket size! It’s the least we can say ! With her giant formats she distills an urban poetry out of the ordinary, she doesn’t tag! She sticks, she maroufle, as the posters of the late nineteenth century!

She can be described as modern art poster. From old documents and photographs of the 50s / 60s; she invents an extravagant writing, a bit crazy ,with lots of poetry and some touches of esotericism!

But that’s not all ; these rather spectacular posters that can already be read and interpreted in a thousand ways; Madame Mustache adds her “Punchline”, a quote of her own, with a sharp pen, which often makes me smile like when I read Jacques Prévert again!

 

The crime scene is in the heart of the Chapelle district, Place de Torcy!

Like I told you ; this discovery has become over time like a “gimmick” … Will there be a new “Madame” when I go for a walk at the Olive’s Fresh market? Here are some of her creations; which I have discovered over time on this same wall, which is abominably ugly when naked!

TENDRE LA MAIN NE VEUT PAS FORCÉMENT DIRE LA METTRE À COUPER

Madame Mustache is not only raging in the 18th arrondissement of Paris!

I was staring to have the feeling that we had in the neighborhood an artist just for us! What was my surprise when I found at the 2nd edition of Capucines des Arts, an ephemeral exhibition in a building in the process of rehabilitation, a piece of her artwork. There I said to myself Madame Mustache doesn’t anymore go up to scale to make marouflage in my district! She climbs especially with her colleagues in the world of Street Art; especially as for this exhibition, the curator was the well-known Christian Guémy Aka ​​C215! Just that 😉

And a few months later, driven by a lively curiosity, I found myself again face to face with two other works of Madame Mustache; at Art42 the Urban Art Museum in Paris; which is also a school of coders for little geniuses in the making. I’ll be back soon in a long article about this place!

You get it, Madame Mustache has escaped from my little neighborhood and I am more than happy. But I was even more delighted to find her at the bar of Aérosol; place dedicated to Street Art opened Spring & summer.

INUTILE DE PARTIR LORSQUE L’ON PEUT S’ÉVADER

If you want to know even more about this artist, you can follow her on her Instagram of course,  or just visit her personal website!

If the discovery of Madame Mustache delighted you; do not hesitate to share! She deserves a few more visits than those of my neighbors!;-)

And a small personal note from her; everyone calls her Madame Mustache because of Mustaches in her signature; but in fact her real artist name is just “Madame”! In few days you will discover this particular ART42 Museum on the Street Art Section of my blog! See you there;-)
