Gouzou

The hunt for Gouzou, have you heard of it? Neither had we!
Once arrived on the Reunion island, we discovered one Gouzou, on the way from the airport to the beach. Then we began the hunt for Gouzou.

Gouzou by Jace

Gouzou is a nice character invented by the street artist called Jace. We fell in love with him very quickly!
Jace is from France, a city called Le Havre and he is living close to the Tampon on the Reunion island, so we have been told.
Jace is good at playing with his surroundings as you can see on the photos gallery we created.

Gouzou is so cute that he was copied in China by a famous clothing brand without any authorization of the artist. Jace took the company to court to proove that he is the father of Gouzou. As a result, you can now see this picture below in the streets:

Wanted Gouzou

Jace is well known for his Gouzou,

Gouzou Picsou

Gouzou Saint Expedit

but also for his graffiti,

He is playing with advertising too.
So our next step will be to go to Le Havre to see his pieces over there, moreover since I know that he came back recently. To follow…
The artist also published few photos books, which the last one is “Worldwide Gouzous” showing the character from 2006 to 2008 (this book was offered by my best friend living there… Thanks and kiss dear Pauline).

StreetLove says : “Gouzou, come to Paris! We miss you a lot!”

For more information about the artist, check his website.
