André Saraiva is now better known as an international nightlife impresario—the man behind Le Baron, Beatrice Inn, and Le Montana—but at the beginning, he was just a graffiti artist with an alter ego (the winking smiley-face tag Mr. A, who’s since gone on to adorn Belvedere bottles and serve as the logo for Saraiva’s Black Block clothing line) and the balls to tag it on every exposed surface in Paris. The graffiti missions are less frequent than they used to be, but at Colette’s gallery space, a new show of the artist’s drawings should remind you of the bygone days. The drawings of imagined currencies from “Bank André” may not be legal tender—except, maybe, for amour et rêves—but we’re betting his admirers will snap them up all the same.
Through February 27 at Colette, 213 rue Saint-Honoré, Paris, colette.fr.
