Urban poetry is a subject mastered by the group ETAM CRU which combines under its initials the Polish duo of Sainer and Betz. The monumental formats deployed by ETAM CRU require technical skill and precision. They are an example of urban art now established as a legitimate and institutionalized production.
The monumental is their trademark. And often their characters, whose dimensions are even more outlandish, fold and curl up in order to inhabit the space. Their pictorial and narrative mode of expression has unlimited and cultural references. “Moonshine for Virginia”, an old woman in a flowered kerchief for Poland. And always a concern for amazing detail both in technical aspects and in vivid portrayal of expressions.
