PARIS.- The Art Mosh landed at Door Studios in Paris with a bang. A stunning venue near the Bastille, set on three levels, Door Studios was the perfect space to showcase some of the best young and emerging artists working today. The creativity of the Nixon production team and artists, combined with the unusual venue, combined to transform this edgy venue into a one-night only art and music experience.

The philosophy of Art Mosh is to showcase contemporary artists in one-off ‘Pop-Up’ events in major cities. Paris Art Mosh not only bought together artists from South Africa, France, Germany, USA, Italy, UK, Belgium and Greece, it also transcended the traditional barriers between different media, by exhibiting photography, painting, design, illustration and prints in an eclectic exhibition. Nixon supports emerging and established talent in the fields of art and music, and unites artists and production team with the common goal of creating buzzy, energetic ‘Pop Up’ exhibitions.

Supported by internationally renowned brand Nixon, in partnership with Wallpaper and Nissan, and curated by Paddy Barstow of Six 18, Art Mosh Paris attracted a cool crowd of Parisien collectors, artists, and movers & shakers from the media, art, fashion and music worlds. The guest list included; Franz Ferdinand, The Cribs, Camille Bidault Waddington, Surface 2 Air, Graffiti Artist Baboo, Rapper Lord Kossity and The Plasticines. The exhibition also showcased items from Nixon’s exclusive LTD Collection.

Babicka Vodka fuelled the partygoers, who were treated to some live art by founding Member of the Ma'claim crew, Andreas von Chrzanowski AKA 'CASE’. CASE created an incredible photo-realist self-portrait on the night, using specially adapted spray cans to achieve a painterly result.

Design duo Bose Collins exhibited a stunning series of surreal images, two of which were featured in the current issue of ‘Design Week’; Benedict Redgrove’s large format prints of skies photographed from an airplane, and his series of airplanes commissioned by BAA, were on view in the high ceilinged top floor space; Moto 777/ toft – robiov’s vast ‘Pop’ canvases injected a mix of art history and pop culture into the first floor space; next to Axel Pauporté’s eye-catching photographs of swimming pools, ‘In & Out’ burger bars and nocturnal diners. Pam Glew’s magisterial flags featuring portraits of iconic French women, greeted visitors to the basement space; Bom K’s surreal street art translated to canvas could also be seen in the basement, interspersed with eye-catching figurative paintings by Faith 47, a stunning portrait using gold leaf by Yoskay Yamamoto, a typically surreal canvas by Herakut, and stunning paintings by Sal R.

More photography on the top floor, this time by Alexander James, featured Parkour practitioners mid-flight, suspended within Crewdson-esque backdrops; in sharp contrast to the adjacent epic drawings by Emanuele Sferruzza Moszkowicz, reminiscent of a Dante-esque journey into the decadent world of Aubrey Beardsley.

Fusing art with contemporary music and DJ’s in unconventional venues is the Art Mosh mission. Mission accomplished in Paris by DJ LOD and Arveene, who continued the party at Chacha Club.

Future Nixon Art Mosh events are scheduled for Milan and London in spring 2010. For the unlucky people who didn’t get to experience this ‘Pop Up’ exhibition, the artwork will be available to view and purchase online at The website was launched on 1st December. Paris Art Mosh was timed to coincide with the launch of the website, which will provide a global platform for the artists, and also enable people to listen to music from the live events.
