("Just a face in the crowd", Jef Aérosol 2011, pochoir sur panneau / stencil on board, 80 x 1OO cm)


1982 - 2012 :
30 ans de pochoir et d'art urbain
30 years of stencil art and street art

Mieux vaut tard que jamais... "better late than never," was the object heading on French urban artist and living legend Jef Aérosol's NewYear's greeting e-mailed yesterday, above. According to their code of etiquette, the French give themselves up until January 31 to send  New Year's wishes. A rule I find myself adopting. Bonne Année, Bonne Santé!

les voeux de "bonne année":  wishes for a happy New Year traditionally exchanged at midnight on New Year's Eve, as well as on the days that follow
une carte de voeux:  a card sent to another expressing one's best wishes
souhaiter:  to wish
un souhait:  a wish
le nouvel an:  the new year
bonne santé:  good health
une légende vivant:  a living legend
juste à temps:  just in time

  1. I do not even understand how I finished up right here,
    however I believed this put up was once good. I don't recognize who you might be but
    certainly you're going to a well-known blogger when you are
    not already. Cheers!
