Through his two passions, he discovers similar qualities: training, repetition, carelessness, impulsiveness and relentlessness.
These two disciplines require a lot of determination both in the work and in the research. To try, to fail and then to start again without ever giving up. Here are the key words of the approach of the one who practices these arts.
Although the artist Jules Rozenwajn is alone on stage, his project "Layers" is actually a duo, a dialogue between the man and his tool of expression: a white marker. His work correlates and links his common passions in which he finds the same energy: dance and graffiti.
This project is a mix between dance and physical performance, visual art and choreography where the artist abandons himself totally to a letting go necessary to inspiration and creativity.

EYES-B - ART COACH
Eyes-B, painter and graffiti artist based in Brussels, has been drawing since he he remembers. He also paints since more than 10 years. He finds his inspiration in digital arts, design and the macro use of organic elements. He has gradually developed his technique using more of a freestyle approach - improvisation and spontaneity guide his work.
Lately, Eyes-B has started to put aside his classic graffiti to concentrate on abstract painting. The legibility of the letter has been replaced by a moving form, images that carry sound. Music is the main driving force behind his work. Rhythm shapes his strokes and dictates his movements, earning him the nickname "conductor". Rhythm, silence, repetition, rupture, dynamism... all aspects of the songs he listens to are highlighted in his paintings.
