LOS ANGELES  •  Fabien Castanier Gallery  •  Ongoing

French street artist Oliver Rizzo, aka Speedy Graphito (born 1961) began painting on the streets of Paris in the early 1980s at a time when the scene there was just beginning, and since then has gone on to influence many of the younger artists who have followed. His inspiration can be found in many diverse areas of modern culture, including Manga cartoons, video games and 1950s America, the resulting images a vibrant clash of Pop and Street visuals. Graphito has been working extensively in Los Angeles in recent years, and in 2011 he took part in the city's Dogtown Artists United Art Crawl. 
At the Fabien Castanier Gallery in Los Angeles, Speedy presents all new work that explores the mutation and perception of the image through a variety of different mediums, from sculptures and paintings to installations.
