Lek & Sowat, an artist duo since 2010, share an interest in Urban Exploration, a pursuit that consists in scouting for modern ruins in cities. They reach beyond the con nes of conventional graf ti on site, combining architectural abstractions, temporary installations, and videos.
In 2012, the Mausolée project led them to the covert gathering of 40 urban artists in a vacant shopping mall, which then opened the doors to Palais de Tokyo in Paris.
They were the rst artists rooted in graf ti to sojourn in the prestigious Villa Medici in Rome from 2015 to 2016.
Participating in the Drawing Hotel’s enterprise is a challenging new adventure that has enabled them to explore new materials and knowhow, as well as an audience beyond city dwellers. They have explored the many possibilities of the lights, wallpaper, rugs, and carpets, to allow guests to fully immerse themselves in a 360 degree experience.
