They've done mixes with Machinedrum, been remixed by artists like PARTYNEXTDOOR and Sango, and supported people like Talib Kweli and Wiz Khalifa. Their Soundcloud sounds pretty good.

    • Awarded 2 master degrees both in Illustration and Contemporary Art, French artist Sebastien Osswald will exhibit the latest works in his first solo exhibition in Shanghai. Sebastien creates his paintings on plaid fabric instead of canvas. He challenges himself to find the best pictorial language which fits in each piece of cloth with its own constraint. His latest works from “Idols and Fans” speak out the phenomenon we often see nowadays in the modern world. He takes us into a strange and sensitive world. His works question us about contemporary issues including globalization, new media and virtual relationship that can arouse between individuals. From his works, we can see what makes us so universal sometimes and what makes us so unique sometimes.
      From Nov 15 until Dec 11 Daily at Noeli Gallery
