CALI
THE COLLECTOR

About

Unique Artwork by Cali. Cali is having fun staging her compulsive collector filling her shopping cart. Cali makes a wink to the most emblematic works of the Contemporary Art : Banksy ''Balloon girl'', Keith Haring ''dog'' , Andy Warhol ''banana'', Marcel Duchamp'' urinor'', Daniel Buren ''column'', Jeff Koons ''balloon'', Robert Indiana ''Love'' and Paul Mac Carthy ''tree'' without forgetting an homage to classical painting ''Girl with a Pearl Earring'' by Johannes Vermeer. About the artist : Caroline Limousin (French, b.1985) also known as Cali is a mixed media artist born in Nantes, France. From a young age, she devoted herself to drawing. Her method of creation is not a common one, Cali uses an everyday BIC ballpoint pen to illustrate world known figures such as Mick Jagger, Marilyn Monroe, Charlie Chaplin, Nelson Mandela, and Kiki de Montparnasse to name a few. Heir to the cultural revolution of Woodstock at the barricades of May '68, Cali questions identities and denounces, with glamor and humor, the setbacks of a consumerist society. Equipped with a double degree in Applied Arts in Rennes and Nantes, Cali made her debut in Paris before moving to Saint-Tropez, the inevitable city on the French Riviera where her work is quickly noticed. From the counterculture to the starification, Cali puts her messages into play using archetypes from popular culture and the collective unconscious (butterflies, newspaper clippings, lead soldiers, hearts....) with newspaper. In her work, she questions identities and denounces, with glamour and humour, the setbacks of a consumerist society. In 2013, with her exhibition Bic Me I'm famous in Marrakech, Cali entered the big leagues and exhibits with the leading artists of the urban art movement like Jef Aérosol. Making the unusual out of the ordinary, developing a complex technique from simple materials, this is the bet of this extraordinary artist: she launches out in very large format portraits on paper with newsprint and the result is bluffing. Her work is showcased at galleries around the world, from Marrakech, Hong Kong, Monaco, Saint-Tropez to Paris.
