Combo Culture Kidnapper: Pop culture at the service of committed Street-art

A notable representative of Parisian urban culture, Combo Culture Kidnapper is a socially engaged street artist. He creates visuals that divert famous symbols of Generation Y pop culture such as the characters from “La Bande à Picsou” or “Tintin”. His artistic ambition is to reveal while countering the injustices that reign in today’s society. To achieve this, this artist mixes components from various universes, including those from video games and Comics.

Making a name for himself in the early 2010s with his works in the Chernobyl exclusion zone, the artist continues to make creations that are both heterogeneous and organic. In addition to numerous collages and graffiti on urban walls, he organizes resonant performances in collaboration with his colleagues. For example, in 2012, the artist Combo set up a pop-up installation to pay tribute to the homeless who died in the streets of Paris.

The artist has participated in several Overlay events such as the Urban Art Jungle Festival and, most recently, the Spraying Board exhibition. In March, the association invited him to paint a fresco on a wall outside Fort Superposition, but the current health crisis has prevented this project from being carried out. Stay tuned because it is very likely that the subversive art of this frequenter of walls around the world will land again soon in our beautiful city of Lyon.
