FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – JEF AEROSOL “ALL SHOOK UP” NYC DEBUT AT AD HOC GALLERY JANUARY 29TH. ****************************************************************** Ad Hoc Art presents international stencil master Jef Aerosol in New York City for “All Shook Up”, a stunning show of cultural icons by a Street Artist with 30 years in the game.
The show with Ad Hoc Art, a gallery widely regarded as one of Street Art’s polestars, features brand new stenciled works as well as the now-classic pieces that have made Jef Aerosol’s name itself iconic; on paper, wood, and found objects.
A true originator who helped spark what is now known as “Street Art” when he sprayed his first stencil series across the city of Tours, France one night in 1982, the self-taught Aerosol has continuously rocked the streets with his oversized portraits and helped define a new public art nomenclature with other French artists like Blek Le Rat, Miss Tic, and Speedy Graphito.
Steadily from the ’80s to the ’10s Aerosol has cut and sprayed stunning portraits of his heroes; cultural icons who stand undiminished by the hype. They connect directly with the masses and shake public opinion with humor and provocation; Strummer, Cash, Vicious, Hendrix, Bowie, Bardot, Cobain, Lennon, Smith, Jagger – all brainy agitators and vixens cut and sprayed in stark layers of black, grey and white. And each with Aerosol’s signature hot red arrows affixed nearby for exclamation.
In Street Art and in the gallery, Aerosol has not purely focused on those well-known personages. Among the faces you’ll find a number of self-portraits and portrayals of the more anonymous among us such as those living and working in the streets.
Like the best photographers, Aerosol catches the instant of truth in his portraits, and reveals a universal humanity in each subject. “In my work I love to call up my feelings and emotions to honor these modern day heroes who have fed my life with their music, art and ideas. This new show is a powerful and vivid collection of these inspirations that I am really excited to bring to New York for the first time,” Jef Aerosol.
Three decades of getting up on walls in cities including Paris, London, Lisbon, Chicago, New York, Bejing, Venice, Amsterdam, Rome, Zurich, Berlin, Dublin, and Tokyo have given him all the “street cred” Jef Aerosol will ever need.
Sighted in numerous books and by authors like Tristan Manco (Stencil Graffiti, Street Logos), blogs like Wooster Collective and Brooklyn Street Art, and newspapers like The New York Times as one of the lynchpins in the stencil art movement that came to be called “street art”, Jef Aerosol’s work has become a perennial favorite of collectors. His work resides in hundreds of private collections, has exhibited in numerous galleries in Europe, the U.S. and Australia (list below), and is regularly auctioned with Bonhams (London, New-York), Artcurial (Paris), Drouot (Paris), and Dreweats (London).
In 2007 Aerosol published a gallery of portraits in VIP Very Important Pochoirs (éditions Alternatives, Paris, 2007).
Galleries where the work of Jef Aerosol has been shown include: Galerie Brugier-Rigail (Paris), Galerie Raison d’Art (Lille), Signal Gallery (London), Zozimus Gallery (Dublin), Art Partner Galerie (Brussels), Galerie Anne Vignial (Paris), Galerie Storme (Lille), Galerie Onega (Paris), Carmichael Gallery (Los Angeles), ATM Gallery (Berlin), and Famous When Dead Gallery (Melbourne).

NEW JAY-Z STENCIL! Jef Aerosol Gives Props to NYC, BROOKLYNN, and JAY-Z with New Iconic Stencil FOR HIS DEBUT SHOW IN NYC www.brooklynstreetart.com/theBlog/?p=7683 Posted on | January 18, 2010 Street Art Stencil Artist Jef Aerosol unveils a brand-new stencil of Jay-Z for his upcoming Debut Show in New York.
A five layer hand-cut stencil of Jay-Z by international street artist Jef Aerosol will debut next week at the Ad Hoc show. A five layer hand-cut stencil of Jay-Z by international street artist Jef Aerosol will debut next week at the Ad Hoc show.
Aerosol is well-known for his other rock and roll icons in the 30 years he’s been getting up all over the globe with stencils: Dylan, Jagger, Bowie, Vicious, Morrison, Lennon and Yoko, Hendrix, Cobain, — and of course there are New Yorkers like Patty Smith and The Ramones. Now, as he prepares to make his debut solo gallery show in New York in 2010, Aerosol is in an EMPIRE STATE OF MIND and pays tribute with this fresh new portrait of rapper Jay-Z. Every era has it’s icons, and with a 20-year old son of his own, clearly Aerosol has his eye on one of today’s best known music pillars. Now with more Number 1 Albums than Elvis Presley, it only makes sense that Brooklyn’s hometown hero has passed into the icon pantheon of Aerosol.
