In particular, to discover not only a new, dynamic gallery I was not aware of, e.l Bannwarth, but also a young artist worth watching: Fahd El Jaoudi. Check out the Paris Artseen Fahd El Jaoudi article (number X in the Paris Artseen series, and the first of the 2009-2010 schoolyear season!) which is up online at EyePreferParis:
The picture posted here is a detail from the piece entitled "le diable n'apparait qu'à celui qui le craint" (2009). Fahd El Jaoudi's current show, "Collision", continues until 18 Oct 2009.
