The At Down Gallery hosts individual and collective exhibitions of artists from the graffiti culture. It presents well-known street artists as well as up-and-coming artists with strong graphic personalities. With its 20 years of activism in the graffiti culture, the gallery team is a bridge between interesting artists and an increasingly interested public.

For Art Élysées we propose a solo exhibition John "CRASH" Matos in the presence of the artist!

Born John Matos in 1961, CRASH was raised in the Bronx, New York. At the age of 13, he began following the older teens from his neighborhood to the train yards and began bombing. Taking the name “CRASH” after he accidentally crashed the computer in his school, his name began appearing on trains circulating all throughout New York City. By 1980, he began transitioning from train yards to galleries, he curated the groundbreaking "Graffiti Art Success for America" at Fashion MODA, launching the graffiti movement that has remained very active through today. CRASH’s career took off and he saw instant popularity throughout Europe and America, and eventually Asia. CRASH has been part of numerous museum and gallery shows around the world focusing on Graffiti and Street Art, and has works in many permanent museum collections. Visually iconic, he has partnered with many companies for projects including Absolut Vodka, Fender Guitars, SoBella Handbags, Levi’s, and most recently, Tumi luggage and Morphik. He continues to work and show both locally and internationally.

Enjoy the awe and power of CRASH!
