The play between shadow and reality is evident in these life size paste ups, a gap between will and ambition, or simply between present and future of the subjects caught in a moment of their lives. Levalet is not new at all to a critical commentary on our society, over the years he has developed a personal style resulting from an acute observation of reality, while always maintaining a poetic and never cynical gaze.

And this is the very first movie to do that. So it’s super, super important. It’s naive, and fresh, and not cynical.

Eller: Today,  I am hanging out with the one and only DMC of RUN DMC, and we’re at New York Comic Con 2023, at the Javits Center. So, DMC let’s talk about your art and your  comics.
