Numéro art met with Pol Taburet, the young revelation of the French art scene, in his Paris studio. He is the winner of the Reiffers Art Initiatives prize for contemporary creation and cultural diversity. In his powerful and bewitching paintings, the French artist summons the Creole quimbois and occult powers as well as US hip-hop imagery. Numéro art also met British star Anish Kapoor in his studio just before his bloody and visceral works took Venice by storm in a resounding double exhibition. This issue also celebrates the amazing painter Marlene Dumas whose carnal paintings, between light and shadow, masterfully enchant the Palazzo Grassi, also in Venice.
